October 20-22, 2017 (All day)
This hands-on and interactive YES session will be hosted at LightHouse’s Enchanted Hills Camp, in Napa. Students will learn about and experience entry level skills that can help them be successful in their first jobs and beyond. Students that participate in this workshop will explore three main work environments: manufacturing, hospitality and food services; and will receive approximately ten hours of work experience.
Objectives and Goals
- Woodworking: Students will learn about adaptive woodworking techniques and practice working in an assembly line with Master Carpenter George Wurtzel to create something they can take home with them from the Enchanted Hills Camp Tactile Art Center.
- Food Services: Students will complete a certification in food handling and safety and then apply their newly acquired knowledge by helping the kitchen staff prep and serve the next meal for other students and guests.
- Hospitality: Students will participate in activities that will teach the importance of good customer service, housekeeping and sales.
- Blindness Skills: YES Programs provides students with the opportunity to practice alternative techniques, problem-solving skills, independent travel methods, literacy and time/organizational/household Management, and much more.
