Project SEARCH, a national nonprofit program, offers young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities a unique opportunity to explore a variety of career paths as interns. Project SEARCH Asheville is a collaboration between Mission Health, The Arc of North Carolina, A-B Tech, Vocational Rehabilitation, Vaya Health, and North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities.
