Project SEARCH originated at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 1996 as a program to teach career-readiness job skills to young adults with special needs. Locally, Project SEARCH is a partnership between Huntsville Hospital, the ARC of Madison County, Vocational Rehabilitation Services (a division of the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation) and Huntsville City Schools.
At Huntsville Hospital, Project SEARCH interns complete three rotations that are 10 weeks each. The ultimate goal of the program is to prepare interns for employment within the hospital or elsewhere in the community.
