Project SEARCH Career Trainer

The PLUS Company

The mission of the PLUS Company, an acronym for People Learning Useful Skills, is to Empower Individuals and Maximize Independence. We serve over 400 individuals and families with offices in Nashua, New Hampshire and Lawrence and Tewksbury, Massachusetts. Our goal is to provide a supportive, innovative, and creative environment that assists individuals with disabilities to develop useful skills, increase self-reliance, and become vital, productive members of their communities.  What makes us unique is that our services allow individuals to explore Home and Life skills, along with Educational/Social and Work Skills all in ONE agency. Programs are created with the vision that all people with disabilities have the confidence, dignity, and skills needed to lead quality lives

Established in 1972 by the Nashua Association for Retarded Citizens, The PLUS Company was incorporated as a non-profit entity in 1978. In 1980, a State of New Hampshire court order mandated that residents of Laconia State School return to live in their communities. This increased the need for community-based services for people with developmental disabilities and resulted in the rapid growth of The PLUS Company. Several group homes were established in the Greater Nashua area, and an emphasis was placed on vocational training.


Project SEARCH is a school-to-work program for students with cognitive and physical disabilities based in a health care setting.  Project SEARCH staff identify available training opportunities, analyze these jobs, and coordinates the process of matching training sites to student interns.  The goal goal is to help the interns gain strong transferable skills for employment.

As the Project Search Career Trainer you will use systematic instruction techniques to help students learn to perform job tasks according to the employer's specifications.  You will train students in work related and social skills necessary to be accepted as a worker at the job training site as well as in future employment.

Training in CESP or ACRE would be helpful.
