Professional Education and Training

An important part of Project SEARCH’s mission is education through which we can share best practices and promote continuous improvement of our programs. Our goal is to provide the tools and technical assistance needed to maximize employment outcomes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


Each summer, members of our growing international network of Project SEARCH practitioners, interns, and families, convene for a week of learning and sharing best practices and innovations.

Save the Date for the 13th Annual Project SEARCH Conference!

Please join us this summer at the Hilton Anaheim Hotel and Convention Center, where we’ll convene with our international network of partners for shared learning and fun!  We’re working hard to plan a conference that will be packed with information to help both new and seasoned practitioners execute the Project SEARCH model to its fullest potential.  Together, we’ll reach for the ultimate goal: employment for every Project SEARCH graduate!
