Families are invited to attend a Johnson County Developmental Supports Project SEARCH informational meeting to learn more about the program. The meeting will be held 6-8 p.m. and families can choose to attend one of two sessions: Jan. 23 or Feb. 4, 2020, at the Johnson County Administration Building, located at 111 S. Cherry St., in Olathe, lower level room 200.
Project SEARCH is an education and employment program model for individuals, 18 years of age or older, with an intellectual or developmental disability who are interested in community employment. JCDS is eager to implement our seventh year of Project SEARCH beginning in August 2020.
Interns spend their time immersed in a host business site, completing three internship rotations designed to teach them marketable, transferable skills. The goal of the program is employment for each intern -- defined as a minimum of 16 hours per week in a competitive, integrated setting, earning a prevailing wage or higher.
Register for free on Eventbrite for the January or the February session. For more information, please contact Forrest Austin by email or by phone at 913-826-2278.
