My Students

Our students are enrolled in the TOPS, Transitional Opportunities for Pre-vocational Skills, program at a high school. We are a transitional program that prepares students to become as independent as when the leave our program at age 22.

We specialize in teaching vocational and life skills including workplace soft skills and preparation as well as attaining transportation.

Our school is a Title I school of a diverse culture, some of which includes African American, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American students in which almost 50% of students receive free/reduced lunch.

My Project

These vocational materials will add the ability for our students to learn and perfect their vocational skills. Learning to punch a timecard and be accountable are very basic skills needed in the workplace. With a timeclock our students will be able to check in and out of "work" and internships throughout the building and gain an understanding of time management.

The register will assist our students in learning the very basic skills of customer service and money skills to help them in the very competitive work force.

The students will learn how to use a register, count money, make change and learn how to interact and socialize with customers in a vocational setting.
