Work-Based Learning students thank community partners

ESS_CommunityWorkBasedLearning

 

The Humble ISD Community Work-Based Learning program recently honored over 40 of their community partners at a community partner appreciation breakfast. The community work-based learning program was created to allow students to use a community business as a learning tool for vocational skills that can be used both at the campus and in the community.


Participating companies provide consistent jobs for students and allow them to be trained for multiple job tasks in their store. Students work with a district job coach to be trained in procedures for their specific job. Job sites vary from Chick-fil-A to Max Bowl.


During the event, students thanked individual businesses that have partnered with them this school year. Each community partner was recognized and received a plaque and thank you note during the event. Community partnerships are important for students in the program because it helps them learn vocational skills that will help increase the probability of employability.

 

The program not only allows students to work on their social skills and interactions with others but it also serves as an opportunity for career exploration. This broadens the scope of work opportunities and empowers the students to be more independent in the community.
