Interns graduate from Project SEARCH at Milwaukee County Zoo

MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The latest class of Project SEARCH interns graduated on Tuesday.

A ceremony was held at the Milwaukee County Zoo. 

The interns went  through three 10-week rotations in different areas of the Zoo and Zoological Society, such as food service, animal buildings, education and administration. Individuals worked 20-25 hours per week and attended a classroom component before and after work each day.

At Project SEARCH, young adults with disabilities learn practical skills as well as social experiences that will enable them to thrive in the career of their choice.

Goodwill's supported employment staff will help the interns with job placement and will provide job coaches for up to six months when they start new jobs.

In Wisconsin, Project SEARCH has placed 88% of participants in successful employment.

Congratulations to all the interns who graduated!
