Spartan Project SEARCH combines classroom instruction provided by Ingham Intermediate School District with a year-long unpaid internship at Michigan State University. This combination of instruction and immersion in the workplace prepares interns to meet employer expectations. Participants gain experience in a variety of settings that will align to their interests, abilities and availability.
- Classroom: Focus on employability and independent living skills. Engage in job seeking activities.
- Community Experience: Manage transportation options and gain skills needed to obtain a community job that aligns with student's vocational goals.
- Work Experience: Work with teacher and job coach to learn how to perform internship tasks independently and participate in internship rotation.
