County Project SEARCH-Montgomery Begins a New Year of Unique Job Training


A group of 12 interns recently began a unique work experience to learn new job skills when they began the 2016-17 Montgomery County Project Search Internship Program in September. The Project Search–Montgomery program is dedicated to providing education and training to young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through an innovative workforce and career development model that benefits the individual, the workplace and community.

This is the fifth year for the program which began in 2012 when County Executive Ike Leggett brought Project SEARCH-Montgomery to County government. Project SEARCH is a one-year school-to-work transition program that targets jobseekers who will benefit from an immersion in a business setting.

Project SEARCH-Montgomery interns participate in daily classroom instruction and gain hands-on work experiences by rotating among three 10-week unique unpaid internships over the course of nine months. Interns can be found working at multiple County agencies performing a wide range of tasks that are of real importance to their co-workers and County residents.
