Last year, TD Bank kicked off its pilot program, Project SEARCH, by welcoming three students to take part in three 10-week internships in their New Jersey offices. The program is a one-year high school transition program, which provides job training and education for high school seniors with cognitive disabilities. This year, the Bank plans to expand this opportunity to more departments.
