Essentia partners with Superior disability program

Essentia Health is partnering with Superior Project SEARCH, a program that helps educate and train young adults with disabilities.

The St. Mary’s Hospital in Superior will host the program, which accepts around half a dozen young adults to learn and work.

Part of the students’ day is spent learning life skills and wellness, and the other part is spent working at an internship. Through the partnership with Essentia, the young adults will rotate through three different internship positions.

The program’s goal is to build skills so that the young adults can find permanent jobs when they graduate.
