Our amazing team of regular and part-time volunteers are committed to helping our special needs clients reach their full potential. Moving from high school into higher education, training and employment is exciting, challenging, and the beginning of an important phase of life. Myriad areas of vocational training are suitable for young adults with special needs. Job shadowing are common and instruction concentrations may include firewood processing, culinary arts, retail store operations, wood working, 3d art, CNC woodworking and semi-secure shredding.. The real-life work situations provided in various vocational settings can provide access to valuable skills for autonomy and self-reliance.
We currently have 15 special needs adults in our vocational environment and are adding more each month. We are always looking for more volunteers to assist us in our endeavors. Get in touch for more information!
Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in this area, we formed our organization to provide a vocational training and a workplace for special needs adults. At our beginning we assisted one young adult with special needs and had tremendous success. We have grown over the years and now are assisting 15 adults in their training, which allows students to gain practical experience in their chosen career path before they even graduate." Students who finish those rigorous programs, have the credentials and training they need to get started right away in their chosen career path. Our vocational education at the secondary level has traditionally had several objectives, including providing students with general employability skills and preparing them to enter paid and unpaid employment in specific occupations.
Vocational school graduates will know many of the tools, terms, and techniques that they’ll need on the job. They still have more to learn when they graduate, but they’ll have a skills-based foundation with which to begin. Our goal is to get them trained and put them to work volunteering in their chosen field of study. Trade and vocational schools are one of the best options for those who know what they want and are ready to make it happen. At Mi Abilities our mission is to prepare students for initial and continued employment.
