Project SEARCH

Project SEARCH is a work-immersion program for adults with disabilities that includes tailored curriculum based on individual needs. Through a partnership between Goodwill of Central Iowa and Hy-Vee, Project SEARCH offers participants career development opportunities in retail sales, food preparation and customer service.

The program is designed for adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities with a strong desire to work, exhibit hygiene, social and communication skills and demonstrate the strength and stamina necessary to train in a fast-paced environment.

Interns learn transferable job skills while gaining self-confidence and soft skills. Project SEARCH is entering its sixth year with 96 percent of our graduates securing jobs after completion.
