Project SEARCH® Arkansas: ACCESS Initiative in partnership with Arkansas Rehabilitation Services

ACCESS introduced this innovative job-training program to assist individuals with the preparation required to gain and keep employment in central Arkansas. Project SEARCH occurs entirely in the workplace providing a nine-month internship for adults 18 – 35 with a goal of sustainable, competitive employment. The programs assist each intern with the development of positive work etiquette, business specific vocabulary, job discovery, self-awareness, increased confidence, and life skills – all within diverse work environments. Through three internship rotations, individuals participate in on-the-job training with daily support from the intern’s business department together with ACCESS skills trainers.

Following this intensive training program, our team assists each individual with identifying employment opportunities and preparing for interviews. Community partnerships are key to identifying job opportunities and securing the desired job. Once employed, ACCESS staff assists with transitioning and will continue to support employment through follow along services and supportive employment.
