Project SEARCH

The one-year program is for students in their last year of school-age eligibility. They will begin their day in a classroom-type setting at Wegmans before spending the rest of the day as an intern.

Each student will rotate through a series of 2-3 departments throughout the course of the year to learn the Wegmans philosophy of customer service, all while learning the skills necessary to work in the service industry.

Students have access to a wide variety of internship opportunities throughout Wegmans, including the bakery, as a cashier, in grocery, health and beauty stocking, produce and the Marketplace Café.

Project SEARCH is a collaborative effort between Monroe One BOCES, Wegmans, Lifetime Assistance, Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities, OPWDD, ACCES-VR and the Golisano Foundation.

More information can be found on the Strong Center for Developmental Disabilities webpage.
