Help Us Level Up Our Coffee Shop

My students need flavored coffee syrups, teabags, an organizer for our coffee shop supplies, and comfy package cold cups and lids to expand their student-run coffee business.

My Students

I teach 18 22-year-old young adults with a variety of intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments in our high school's Transition Program. My students are focusing their time in school on preparing for life after high school; that looks different for every student. We work with each student individually to help them communicate their personal goals and visions for their futures.

My students are looking forward to being as independent as possible after high school.

All of my students participate in internships and jobs around our school building and in the community as part of their education. We also practice interviewing skills, job applications, cooking, cleaning, money, time, and functional writing skills.

Most of my students are looking forward to moving out of their parents' home, working, and being involved in their community when they finish school. Others are looking to continue their education in a college or vocational/trade training program.

My Project

Young adults with disabilities are lacking in real-world employment experiences and opportunities. I teach 18-22 year-old students with a variety of disabilities who love to work and want to learn real skills that they can apply in community employment.

My students have just started their own coffee shop business selling coffee, tea, and hot chocolate to staff in our school store.

They are currently selling coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

My students want to expand our offerings to include iced coffee and a variety of new coffee flavors.

They are not yet making enough of a profit to purchase initial new items, but are confident that adding these items to the menu will help them grow their business, and that their business will soon be self-funding. In the future they are looking forward to adding some baked goods and maybe extending the coffee shop hours to include some lunch offerings.
