This one year transition program will provide training and education leading to competitive employment for individuals with disabilities. Interested candidates must be 18 to 21 years old and entering or finishing their last year of high school.
Information sessions were held for potential students, families and district administrators earlier this month for this new site location that resulted from CIU 20's continued collaboration with Northampton County, Human Resources Center, Inc (HRC), the Office of Vocational Rehab (OVR) and Project SEARCH. CIU 20 has partnered with Project SEARCH, HRC and OVR since 2015 with the Kalahari Resorts Project SEARCH site location in the Poconos, leading to nearly 70 students receiving the training and skills to support competitive employment.
Project SEARCH is a national organization that works with local agencies to assist young adults with disabilities to gain work experience and obtain competitive employment in their communities.
