Approximately 74% of adults with significant disabilities are unemployed. Internationally, on the average, 72% of Project SEARCH grads receive employment within the first year of graduating! Our  Project SEARCH program has a 94% employment rate!

Project Search is an onsite, transition-to-work training program for 5th year seniors located at Springfield Regional Medical Center that provides internships and education leading to community employment for students with developmental disabilities. 

Our curriculum focuses on work skills, primarily: team building, workplace safety, technology, self-advocacy, preparing for and maintaining employment, financial literacy, health and wellness, etiquette, social appropriateness, resume writing, travel training, and so much more!  While these skills are developed onsite at a hospital, these skills also transfer to employment across several industries.  

There are 7 graduates in the Class of 2023, bringing the total number of graduating students to 77! We project that Springfield Regional Medical Center will hire four of our Class of 2023 graduates, with one in registration, two in nutrition services, and one in EVS. The three remaining Class of 2023  graduates are applying for employment in the community.

At the end of the 2022-23 school year the program had a 94% employment rate. 

Of the 77 Project SEARCH graduates, 10 are currently employed at Springfield Regional Medical Center, with five of them serving as mentors to current students.
