Community Regional Medical Center – Fresno
Project SEARCH is a dedicated program focused on providing education and training to young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This is accomplished through an innovative workforce and career development model that benefits the individual, workplace, and community. Our primary goal is to prepare each intern for competitive employment upon completion of this year long skill-building
- Project Search is a combined employment training and internship program for young adults, 20-39, with intellectual disabilities.
- Participants will be in program at Community Regional Medical Center, M-F from 8:30am-2:30pm.
- An instructor/job coach works with interns on employ-ability skills in the classroom during the first hour and last half-hour of each day.
- The bulk of the day is spent at an unpaid work assignment, which will rotate three times per program year.
- Job development services are to start at the second half of the program year.
- Participants may apply to open positions for permanent employment at Community Regional Medical Center.
- Students not anticipated to be employed by CMRC, will be actively assisted in finding employment with other community businesses using the skills they developed in Project Search.
- A successful program outcome for Project Search is a job working 16 or more hours per week making minimum wage in an integrated setting.
