Two students from Eanes ISD and one student from Lake Travis ISD graduated from the Project SEARCH program last week. This is the second year of the internship program.

Project SEARCH is a national internship program designed for students with disabilities during their last year of high school. Throughout the school year, students participate in an immersive program that includes training, career exploration, and job coaching. The student receives three targeted internships on a rotating basis, learning core skills necessary for entry-level employment and then growing and building on those skills with assistance from a mentor and a job coach.
