Our students with unique and different abilities are often underemployed and often are not given the opportunities to have a job. We are creating an enterprise program to teach our amazing special needs students specific work skills that will incorporate the social skills and behavior management strategies to allow them the opportunity to be employed. The program will give the students interpersonal skills such as stronger communication, self-confidence and problem-solving. The students will gain knowledge in all aspects of a business such as marketing, inventory, cash-flow management, and technical skills. They will gain hands-on learning that will be used toward their work-based experience hours. The students will help create shirts, hats, keychains, and cups to be sold to the community promoting our school mascot "Dixon Bulldog". The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. I have allocated a portion of our room to become our hub, now it only needs the supplies to become a reality.
