Participants must be a sophomore, junior, or senior in high school. Students will participate in classes including: job readiness skills, work behaviors, interviewing skills and independent living skills. Guest speakers will provide information on various topics including: transition to college or career, personal financial management, self-confidence, tips to utilize accessibility supports in the community or college settings, and recreational outings. Worksite options include entry-level tasks in professional settings and opportunities with the Toledo Rotary's Disability Service Committee. Students will reside in a residence hall Sunday — Thursday on the campus of the University of Toledo.
