As a job club explores future options for students with disabilities, students are learning to lead discussions and deal with topics such as interview skills, transportation, and working with others.
At the University of Maine at Farmington, students in the Rehabilitation Services program are working with transitional students in high schools to explore their future. They have been facilitating groups at the high schools through the Job Club.
In addition to learning about interviews, job skills, problem solving, and getting along with co workers, there are some fun activities as well.
“It is absolutely fun and helps reduce stress,” according to Kaleb Kwasniak of Spruce Mountain in Jay.
Spruce Mountain students were on campus to find out about college and job prospects they had a tour of the campus, a scavenger hunt, and time with college student mentors.
