My Students

Our school specializes in working with students with disabilities in a vocational program. The far majority of our students do not go through the traditional route of high school which would culminate in them receiving diplomas and preparing for colleges or GED programs. Instead, we do everything in our power to help our young adults find work opportunities to actively participate in society. A class of our students participates in a gardening, carpentry and custodial program inside of our school.

We are attempting to teach them not only the vocational tasks involved in these fields, but also how to establish relationships, proper workplace behaviors and attitudes and the financial and literacy skills to ensure workplace success.

Our students would greatly benefit from having materials that can help introduce vocational opportunities. Establishing a dry cleaner/washing service will offer our students in this class to establish a new business and gain the skills we value as a school community.

My Project

In our vocational-based school, our students are always searching for opportunities to learn work-related skills and establish functioning business. Our teacher in one of our work sites generously purchased a washing machine to teach the students how to utilize, but we are still in need a dryer and detergent to assist in our efforts to establish this business. The skills gained from these materials would go a long was in providing our students with disabilities another option in helping them find work that they might enjoy and could possibly incorporate into their post-school lives. If possible, please help us fund this school business.
