Project SEARCH

Project SEARCH is a transition program involving a one-year internship for 18-21 year-olds in their last year of school eligibility. Individuals must apply and be accepted to participate in this program. Through total immersion in the Medtronic business setting, the work place provides learning, teaching and acquisition of employability work skills. Each student/intern receives authentic training and skill development. The goal for each student is competitive employment upon graduation and successful completion of the program. 

Come join us on a tour and learn more about Project SEARCH/Medtronic! 

The following dates have been set aside for potential students, parents, school staff, and others to come and learn more about what Project SEARCH/Medtronic can offer you!  You will meet the current interns and tour the facility where students have their daily class before heading out to their internship.  Due to space constraints, we will be limited to 10 people per date.
