Project Search doubles in size to grow Wisconsin's workforce

Green Bay - Governor Scott Walker announced Project Search is expanding from 7 sites in Wisconsin to 14.

Project Search is a business-led collaboration that gives young adults with disabilities training and career exploration to help them get and maintain a job.

The governor made the announcement at ASPIRO in Green Bay on Thursday. ASPIRO provides programs and employment to the disabled to help them gain independence. 

ASPIRO is now one of the larger businesses that are part of this collaboration to grow the state's workforce.

"Really, it's not about charity. It's about connecting people helping find the unique abilities that people with disabilities, who are otherwise identified as having disabilities can offer to the workplace," Governor Walker said.

The goal is to expand Project Search to 27 sites in the next 3 years.
