Project SEARCH

PROJECT SEARCH is a unique program designed to help students with disabilities successfully transition from high school to the workforce. Over the course of a year, students have the chance to participate in targeted internships hosted at job sites across the state of Florida. Okaloosa has obtained a host site at the Hilton Garden Inn, located in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. This site will host the first Okaloosa PROJECT SEARCH Interns beginning the 2022 - 2023 school year. There is an application process with an application available here on the OCSD Transition Web Page.

Please complete, sign, and return the Project Search Application.
