STURTEVANT, WI (March 9, 2018) – On Thursday, March 15 Andis Company is hosting two information sessions for Project SEARCH, a workforce and career development model for young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. The two separate sessions will be held from 3:30-4:30 p.m. and 5-6:00 p.m. at Andis headquarters located at 1800 Renaissance Blvd. in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.

Interested individuals will be able to meet current Project SEARCH interns, hear from employed former interns and talk with leaders about how to apply to the program during the information session.

Project SEARCH is an initiative led by Easterseals Southeast Wisconsin in partnership with the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Racine Unified School District, Department of Health Services, the families and the interns. The partnering organizations provide internships from September through early June in professional work environments with the goal of providing the adults with marketable, competitive and transferable skills that lead to employment.

80% of our graduates have found community-based employment through Project SEARCH.
