Interested in learning about a vocational training program for individuals with developmental disabilities?  Project SEARCH will host an Open House at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth Hitchcock-Keene on Tuesday March 15th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Project SEARCH is a community-based vocational training program for individuals with developmental disabilities. Participants in Project SEARCH become Interns, learning skills on-the-job, and gaining practical experience in the healthcare field as they rotate through internship sites at the hospital/clinic.  Internships are structured to teach skills that are competitive, marketable and transferable.  The goal of Project SEARCH is employment that matches the Intern’s experiences, strengths and skills.  Project SEARCH starts each year in September and ends in June.

Qualified applicants are students who are 20 years old and in their last year of high school eligibility or adults who have graduated from high school. All applicants must be eligible and receiving services from MDS.  Students transitioning from high school must turn 21 before the end of their Project SEARCH program.  Priority is given to those transitioning from high school.

Project SEARCH partners include Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth Hitchcock-Keene, Keene School District, Monadnock Center for Successful Transitions, Monadnock Developmental Services and NH Vocational Rehabilitation. Learn more from representatives of these partners at either Open House. RSVP to Molly McNeill at 352-1304 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
