Project SEARCH Kickball Tournament

Posted on Jun 15, 2015 by in The OFI Blog |

Project Search Smithsonian Institution (PSSI) is an initiative geared toward young adults with developmental disabilities. The program offers three 10-week internships at the Smithsonian Institution with the aim of giving program participants valuable working world experience. 

PSSI Interns, DaQuan  Proctor, Heather Weiss, and Sergeo Neal, who recently completed the program, published an article in the latest edition of the Smithsonian Project Search Newsletter, which we are happy to republish here. 

Project SEARCH Interns before the kickball game

“On Friday, May 29, the Project Search Smithsonian program had a social event with Project Search NIH [National Institute of Health] program and Project SEARCH Montgomery County. It was a kickball event at Stratton Park in Bethesda, MD. The interns of PSSI got to meet and chat with the interns of NIH and MC.

We ate lunch together and had time to chat before starting the kickball game. Everyone had a fun day playing kickball. There were two teams, both a mixture of PSSI, MC, and NIH interns.

Even though it was a hot day, everyone drank cold refreshing water and lemonade to stay cool.

We all cleaned up after the kickball game and we went home. Everyone had fun that day.”
