Students who participate in Warren City Schools’ Transition to Work program are garnering additional real world job experience while working with the district’s community partner at Goodwill.
Our Students with Disabilities are being coached by two staff members from Warren G. Harding High School.
While the district already has a variety of jobs to complete at Goodwill, this year we have expanded to provide our students the opportunity to shadow the cashiers in order to make connections with the customers. They get to experience and practice the social skills needed to work in a merchandise setting, while witnessing the complexities of the payment process as well.
The best way to ensure that students with disabilities will be competitively employed upon graduation is to provide them with job readiness and self advocacy skills while still in high school.
We are proud of our students’ hard work and dedication to both their education as well as their commitment to their transition goals. We look forward to the continued success of our students in our Transition to Work program for years to come!
