On June 9, 2023, MARC, Inc. of Manchester celebrated the fourth graduating class of its Project SEARCH program at Goodwin University. The Commencement Speakers this year were Dan Noonan (Senior Vice President of Goodwin University & University of Bridgeport) and David Fichandler (Senior Director, Clinical Operations at Hartford Hospital).
The Project SEARCH program prepares MARC individuals for a future of employment, living independently, and being a part of the everyday workforce. Project SEARCH is a one year internship in the workplace that provides first hand job experience. This experience will ultimately increase an intern's work skills and abilities making them a competitive candidate in the employment process. Thank you to our tremendous partners and employers for providing internship opportunities; Goodwin University (host site), Hartford Healthcare (host site), Lori’s Gifts, ShopRite of East Hartford, and Walgreens of Glastonbury.
If you have an opportunity that sounds like a good fit for one of MARC’s talented individuals, please contact The Project SEARCH Coordinator, Randi Hewitt, at (860) 646-5718 ext. 282.
