Professional Education and Training
An important part of Project SEARCH’s mission is education through which we can share best practices and promote continuous improvement of our programs. Our goal is to provide the tools and technical assistance needed to maximize employment outcomes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Join us online for the
2021 Project SEARCH Virtual Conference
Monday – Thursday, July 19 – 22, 2021
We are committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy during 2021! Given that we don’t know the details of when the COVID vaccines will be released, and the inability to ensure safe distancing in a large crowd, we have chosen to host a virtual Project SEARCH Conference in July of 2021. We’ll open with an awards ceremony on July 19. All-day workshops will be on July 20, and breakout sessions will be July 21-22.
Registration will open Monday, March 1, 2021.
Registration Cost: $250.00 (includes all-day workshops, general sessions, and breakout sessions)
Special Rate for Group Registrations: Register 5 individuals for $1,000. That’s 5 for the price of 4! *Must register as a group to get the group rate.
