Project Search - Overlook Medical Center

In January of 2019, Josh Bornstein, UCESC’s Director of Special Projects was a featured guest on Jersey Matters to discuss the Project SEARCH program at Overlook Medical Center. Hosted by award-winning Journalist Larry Mendte, Jersey Matters covers news, politics, the arts and current events within The Garden State. Larry sits down with state politicians, business and cultural leaders, reporters, and newsmakers to discuss and analyze what’s happening in New Jersey and the impact it has on citizens of the state.

The goal for each student participant in Project SEARCH is competitive employment. The program provides real-life work experience combined with training in employability and independent living skills to help youths with significant disabilities make successful transitions from school to productive adult life.
