Outings into the community allow students to engage with potential employers, practice professional skills and interactions, and shadow employees.
These are some of the businesses that have opened their doors to WorkAbility students.
We have added various training stations to our program! These will help our members explore their interests, as well as help us assess their job skills:
Janitorial - which is cleaning various surfaces, sweeping, mopping, and more
Office Assistant - includes filing, copying, and answering phones
Courtesy Clerk - students learn bagging groceries and customer service
Laundry - separating clothes, operating machines, and folding
Restaurant - which is rolling cutlery, busing and setting a table
Cashier - making change and calculating sales tax
We hope to add a coffee, food handling and safety, and a garden station later this year. We are thrilled about the upcoming year and seeing where our members find employment!
Guest speakers provide access to employers, employment tips, and networking opportunities. Here are some of the guest speakers that have graced our program!
