 Project SEARCH has been recognized nationally for its widely replicated employer-based job training model. In this article we describe the implementation of Project SEARCH in two rural areas of Virginia. Three student intern profiles are provided to illustrate how this on-the-employment site training model impacted the interns’ lives. Rural culture, transportation and regional collaboration are described in the context of Project SEARCH.
