Through a continuing partnership among UMB, the Arc Baltimore, the Baltimore City Public School System, and the Division of Rehabilitation Services, Project SEARCH is a model in workforce and career development for adults and students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
This program creates internships for high school students to learn employable skills within the campus. It improves the student’s probability of being employable and enhances University awareness of the potential of people with disabilities.
UMB was selected by Maryland Works as the “2008 State Employer of the Year” for employing people with disabilities. Its goal is to increase the number of internships of students served each year, which has resulted in the hiring of some of the students. It also has broadened the scope throughout the University System of Maryland and the surrounding community. In 2010, the University of Maryland Medical Center joined UMB in this beneficial program.
UMB’s participation in Project SEARCH strengthens the University’s commitment to build an inclusive and diverse campus community. For more information about establishing an internship or hiring a graduate, contact Tameka Harry, Program Manager, 410-706-7486 (office) or 443-784-6646 (cell).
