GAINESVILLE - Hall County students involved in Project SEARCH at Northeast Georgia Medical Center will be featured on Fox 5 News Thursday.
Project SEARCH is a unique business-led transition program designed for students with disabilities and targets students whose main goal is employment.
The segments will air at 6:30 a.m., 7:30 a.m., noon, and finally, at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
The project instructor is Colleen Pirkle and the job coach is Brent Wykle.
The cornerstone of the one school-year program is immersion into Northeast Georgia Medical Center. The students learn employment related job skills while participating in three worksite rotations that prepare them with essential job-specific skills needed to gain and maintain meaningful employment.
Project Search is a partnership between the Hall County School System, Northeast Georgia Health System and the Department of Labor Vocational Rehabilitation.
