DWD, Mayo Clinic, Celebrate Graduation of 7 Local Project SEARCH Interns

EAU CLAIRE – Thea Lenhart spent the past nine months learning new skills and trying new work opportunities at the Mayo Clinic Hospital through Project SEARCH, a collaborative program overseen by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development`s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).

Lenhart, a graduate from Chippewa Falls High School, particularly enjoyed working at the hospital coffee shop, where she had the opportunity to stock the sandwiches and chips, and assist with inventory.

"I will miss the Goat Coffeehouse," Lenhart said, adding, "doing my tasks and working at Project SEARCH."

Lenhart, along with eight other students with disabilities, celebrated the completion of Project SEARCH on May 31, 2024, during a graduation ceremony that drew friends and families to Mayo Clinic`s lower-level auditorium. With help learning new work skills through Project SEARCH, Lenhart hopes to find a full-time job in Chippewa Falls...

Started at Cincinnati Children`s Hospital Medical Center in 1996, Project SEARCH has provided workforce training to over 1,800 Wisconsin residents since its statewide launch in 2008. For more information, visit Project SEARCH Wisconsin.


Ken Notes: There are also a lot of these stories and many more Project SEARCH programs statewide. I love this program and would encourage you to consider getting involved. Thumbs up DWD!!!!
