Project SEARCH at Jefferson Health Virtual Graduation

COVID-19 Member News Member Announcements

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the student interns of Project SEARCH at Jefferson Health (a nationally acclaimed employment program for students with autism and related disabilities) could not be together for their graduation ceremony. But that didn’t stop the Project SEARCH team from celebrating their graduates – students were surprised at home with balloons, graduation certificates and a gift from the team at Jefferson Health New Jersey before taking part in a Zoom video graduation ceremony.

Project SEARCH at Jefferson Health, which is facilitated by Y.A.L.E. School, is a program that provides full immersion in the job preparation process, as students gain extensive experience in a work environment to ready them for competitive employment. Award-winning Jefferson Health, located in Cherry Hill, hosted the interns in this one-year internship program.
