My Students

Transitioning into young adults may come easy for some students, but others need lots of added support. Daily living skills, including cooking, are essential to transitioning to independent or semi-independent living for students with special needs.

These students are special education students from 9th grade to post-secondary (age 26), housed in our district's high school.

These students need the routine and repetition of basic skills in order to retain these concepts. These students will transition out of the public school system and need to have life skills in order to function as independently as possibly in society. These students are all in a low-income area, and many come from broken homes.

My Project

Cooking skills are essential to having some independence. These blenders and cookware sets will be used to teach basic cooking skills that these students will be able to continue to use as they transition out of the public school system. These students will not only learn cooking skills for themselves, but will be able to use these supplies to fund raise for their program to make it self-sufficient. The fund raising that will be tied in will bring money to continue buying the ingredients for the lessons that will be taught.

This project will allow these young adults the opportunity to learn some basic cooking skills that they can take with them when they go on and live in independent, semi-independent, or assisted living arrangements after their public school experience.

These students have not been afforded this opportunity through school, but this project and program will allow them to do so. This project will move our program/classroom to the next step so we can continue to teach essential life skills.
