Summer Job Exploration Training for Youth

Each summer, Workshops, Inc. offers Job Exploration Training (JET), a summer learning program for local high school students with disabilities. Our program gives them the opportunity to experience a variety of workplaces with differing work experiences, along with a job readiness classroom component to gain skills that will prepare them to reach their highest vocational potential.

This summer, we are partnering with the Birmingham Zoo to provide a great opportunity for our students, and an enthusiastic workforce for the Zoo. Our students are participating in some great career building skills including landscaping, picking up trash inside the zoo, and assisting with the Birmingham Zoo Café catering! In addition to working at the Zoo, the students are hanging out around Workshops helping out one of our long time customers by sorting bottle caps that are used to make art. Every day looks a little different with varying activities such as tending to their garden and learning how to change a flat tire. This program strives to provide students with important life skills to allow them to be successful in the workforce and reach their full potential. 

Your Outsourcing Solution!

Workshops, Inc. offers local outsourcing solutions across all industries and businesses. With an available work force of enthusiastic associates, we handle the assembly, packaging and fulfillment needs of local companies so that they can maximize profits and achieve scale on a cost-effective basis.

But why tell you when we can show you? This video will tell you all about it!

It's summer! At Workshops, Inc., that means our building will have more than 40 high school students here exploring job options, learning how to be a good employee, and having fun while they learn. The program, Job Exploration Training or JETS, is funded by the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services as part of their transition services for youth. We're excited to have them here and invite you to follow their time in this program here on the website, and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
