Project SEARCH, an internship program for students with disabilities, will host its first job fair in April.

About 20 to 30 employers will be present, including Courtyard by Marriott, Embassy Suites, Hy-Vee, Mutual of Omaha, VR Nebraska, Wells Fargo, Papio Fun Park and Papillion-La Vista schools.

Participants will register for industry-specific skill assessments and attend learning sessions such as resume building, dressing for success and interviewing skills.

The event will be held April 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the La Vista Conference Center, 12540 Westport Parkway.

Participants in Project SEARCH experience three 10-week internships in the housekeeping, culinary, restaurant and banquet departments at the Embassy Suites and Courtyard La Vista hotels. The 11-student class will graduate May 9.
