Project SEARCH Bayhealth

Project SEARCH Bayhealth
Project SEARCH Bayhealth Project SEARCH Bayhealth serves young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Typically, these are high school students who are on an Individual Education Program (IEP) and in their last year of school eligibility. The goal for program participants is competitive employment.

Project SEARCH is a unique business-led, one-year, school-to-work program that takes place entirely at Bayhealth Hospital Kent County Campus. Each intern will have three internship rotations at Bayhealth Hospital working with a Bayhealth mentor and a job coach. Total workplace immersion facilitates a seamless combination of classroom instruction, career exploration, and relevant job-skills training through strategically designed work-based internships. Work-based learning opportunities help students attain the much-needed workplace job skills as well as social and communication skills. Seventy-five percent of last year’s graduates have obtained employment with at least 16 hours a week and earning at least minimum wage! If you are a young adult ages 18 to 20 who would benefit from a fantastic transition program like Project SEARCH Bayhealth, the class of 2022-2023 is forming now!
