The Spartan Project SEARCH team is proud to be recognized with the 2020 Distinguished Partnership Award for Community-Engaged Service from MSU University Outreach and Engagement!
Project SEARCH is helping people across the country overcome their disabilities to learn new skills and achieve their goals.
Michigan State University is helping young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities prepare for the workplace through a new on-campus internship program.
Each year, students in Spartan Project SEARCH receive on-the-job support as interns in MSU settings such as offices, residence halls, cafes, and many more.
Spartan Project SEARCH combines a successful international program with insight from community partners committed to improving outcomes for students in transition.
“The world is going to change for these young people but also for so many others… People will have their preconceptions shattered.”
— Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley
On Friday, December 8th, Interns and Peer Mentors took a break from demands of work and exams to share holiday music and cheer on this afternoon of teambuilding and craft-making. Teams of architects and master decorators turned gingerbread cookies into doors and chimneys, applied red and green color frosting, gum drops and peppermints on rooftops, and found the perfect spots for trees and their gingerbread family.
