Project SEARCH Honored for High Rate of Hires

Montgomery County’s Project SEARCH program has been recognized for achieving a 70 percent hire rate for its class of 2012-13 with an Employment Outcome Award presented at the Eighth Annual Project SEARCH conference in Omaha, NE.

Project SEARCH Montgomery targets individuals whose main goal is competitive employment and who will benefit from an extensive period of training, long-term job coaching and continuous feedback from teachers, job coaches and employers.

The program is a key component of County Executive Ike Leggett’s commitment to increasing opportunities for persons with significant disabilities to work in Montgomery County government.
