My Students

My students want to work! Our students are 18 to 22 years of age with moderate to severe disabilities. The staff prepares these students by offering them various on and off campus job skill experiences. Additionally, students learn interpersonal skills, how to take public transportation, money exchange, and self advocacy, just to name a few classes.

In spite of disabilities, students try hard to learn their jobs.

In my four years teaching at my school, I have seen many students develop committed job skills in the health care industry, graphic & culinary arts, performing arts, shipping and handling, auto-detailing, horticulture, cosmetology and retail industries.

Today the trend of "aging in place" leads instructors to create an in-home support services class as an introductory to Home Health Aide or Certified Nursing Assistant careers.

As people live longer they need basic support with daily living needs.

Please support our students with household items to train and develop viable in-home support services job skills.

My Project

Acquiring these instructional resources, a bed, bed tables, and a microwave will help establish the real-world experiences needed to learn basic skills in the In-Home Support Services class.

My school is one of the largest career transition centers in Los Angeles, serving a diverse student body of several cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds.

Widney's vision strives to develop life-long learning, independence, engaging work and active members of the society.

The benefits of supporting our work strands for employers is that it provides work ready applicants, collaboration between local businesses and schools, in addition, to the opportunities to of building self-sufficiency in the students.
