Mustang Coffee Shop
My students need 2 coffee machines and supplies to start a classroom coffee shop which will serve students and staff.
Help students with special needs get job skills! Students with special needs are seeking the opportunity to learn customer service practices and employment skills. These students would like to start a business. The class plans to sell coffee to students and staff at their high school each morning.
The students in our class vary from moderate to severe special needs.
Some of them are able to do simple one-step tasks, while others require more direct supervision and assistance. These students work on vocational skills, independent living skills and on becoming independent and productive members of society. They attend a public high school.
My students need 2 coffee machines and supplies to start a classroom coffee shop which will serve students and staff. By donating a Single Serve coffee maker and coffee, students can independently or with little direct assistance operate the coffee maker just by pushing a button. These coffee makers can give students the feelings of accomplishment and independence. The interaction between the students and the customers will replicate a service environment so that when these students earn their diploma and graduate, they can be more self-confident in their ability to work with customers.
Please consider donating to the Functional Skills Workshop so that students have the chance to get real world applications in a school setting.
The teachers of the Functional Skills Workshop wish that each of their students will translate these newly learned skills into the real work place in the future and on to paid employment. Think Coffee for Jobs!
