Meet some of the Richland One School District students who are part of Project SEARCH in the Midlands in this short video from WLTX. Instead of attending regular classes, the students selected for Project SEARCH have spent their last year of high school doing unpaid internships at Embassy Suites. They have become immersed in the work environment and learned a variety of transferable job skills.
In partnership with the VR Greenville office and the Greenville County School District, Bon Secours St. Francis Health System recently graduated its first group of Project SEARCH interns.
