Summer Job Exploration Training for Youth
Each summer, Workshops, Inc. provides a summer learning program for up to 40 high school students with disabilities. Students get the opportunity to work in a variety of local businesses over the course of 4 weeks - learning about jobs and workplaces that might offer a good long-term fit.
In 2019 we are offering these students an exciting new experience - the Art of Growing Vegetables. Using the idea of "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime," we want our students to learn the basics of growing vegetables, and to experience the satisfaction of seeing something grow that they planted and cultivated.
