Project SEARCH provides individuals with disabilities tuition-free job training and educational, developmental, and employment opportunities. Project SEARCH is a 9 month unpaid internship, and at the completion of the program, graduates are employment ready. Of the most current graduating class, 92% have achieved employment at graduation. Progress operates two Project SEARCH programs in Middle Tennessee, at the Embassy Suites Downtown Nashville (hospitality training) and at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (hospital-based role training).
