Special Need Students Developing Job Skills!

Help me give my students the essentials needed to feel comfortable during Work-Based Learning opportunities and job interviews!

My Students

What makes my students special is their motivation to learn. Despite the challenges that my students are dealt with, due to their special needs; they work hard to get the skills needed to become successful citizens in our community.

My students range from young ladies and gentleman: 16 to 22 years old, that would like a career working in the workforce environment.

We encourage our students to research the qualities needed to be successful in this field of education, daily.

My Project

These basic health supplies, such as mouth wash, toothbrushes, and feminine hygiene products will make a difference in my students' learning by encouraging them to feel comfortable presenting themselves and building self-confidence. My goal is to provide my students with the items they might not have at the last minute. We are also asking for some basic classroom supplies, such as paper.

Our students are provided with opportunities to meet with employers and convince them; that they are the right people for the job!

Our special need students are trained in the vocational areas that are trending in the community, in which they live. I look forward to them getting the essentials that are needed to feel comfortable, during employment opportunities at our school.
