Five community partners have joined together to provide real work experience that prepares students with intellectual disabilities for employment after graduation.

The national Project Search program is collaborating with the Barber National Institute, AHN Saint Vincent Hospital, the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR), the Erie County I.D./MH Office, and the Erie School District. 

Six student interns from the Erie School District are working at AHN Saint Vincent with support from job coaches from the Barber National Institute.
