Our 2023 Interns - Graduation

Meet our interns for 2023 and learn a bit more about them. 


Thomas Ball

Hello, my name is Thomas.
I am 20 years old and and went to Allenvale School. I'm excited to be a new intern at Project SEARCH. In my spare time I enjoy creative writing, walking dogs, and have learned how to make soap. For work experience I have done some administration and garden work. I've got a good sense of humour and I'm appreciated for my bad jokes! I am interested in trying out jobs like hospitality and administration for my Project SEARCH internships, as well as having some new work experiences to help me find out what kinds of jobs I would enjoy in the future.


Troy Washington 

Kia ora, my name is Troy and I am 20 years old. I went to Rangiora High School. Sports are a big part of my life, including rugby, football, Futsal, basketball and Sevens. I keep myself fit and enjoy biking, working out and being an active part of sports teams. The internships that interest me are working outdoors, and working with patients and people with disabilities. I've had different work experiences including grounds-keeping at a golf course, and I drove a tractor. I've got my restricted licence. I'm looking forward to learning new things in my Project SEARCH internships this year.


Jayden Earnshaw

Hi, my name is Jayden.

I am 18 years old and went to Rangiora High School. My interests are cars and motorbikes, especially Ford, Holden and Honda. I like Motocross and spending time with my friends, and I play basketball. I am here at Project SEARCH to learn new skills and get a paid job. Ideas that interest me are outdoor work, and working with patients. I enjoy having a laugh, talking and helping people. It is exciting to be part of Project SEARCH.
