PROVAIL is proud to partner with the University of Washington, King County Developmental Disabilities Division, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and Seattle Public Schoool's BRIDGES program to bring Project SEARCH to Seattle, Washington.
Project SEARCH at the University of Washington is a one-year, collaborative business-led internship program designed for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The goal of the program is to link students to individualized, competitive, and integrated employment in the community.
Once the school year begins, the first few weeks of the program are focused on new employee orientation, hands-on skills assessment, and familiarization of a business environment. Students develop career plans which guide the internship selection process and individualized job search.
Families who are interested interested in the program or have additional inquires should attend the following information session:
Enrollment for Project SEARCH is due on Friday February 29th 2018, but should be turned in as soon as possible.
