Who We Are

Spartan Project SEARCH’s inaugural year started in Fall 2016 at Michigan State University as a partnership with Ingham Intermediate School District, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Michigan Rehabilitation Services, Community Mental Health, and Peckham Inc.

Spartan Project SEARCH brings a successful international program for young adults with developmental disabilities to the campus of Michigan State University, one of 12 program sites starting in Michigan. Participants will experience classroom and on-the-job learning in a variety of settings, with leadership and expertise from researchers in the MSU College of Education.

This Secondary Transition program combines classroom time provided by Ingham Intermediate School District with a year-long unpaid internship at Michigan State University. Participants gain experience in a variety of settings that will align to their interests, abilities and availability.
