Global Citizenship “Heart at Work”

 

We have two Global Citizenship classes helping Heart At Work to prepare gourmet gift boxes of popcorn for the holiday season.  Heart At Work is a program started by one mom who wanted opportunities for her son, who has Down’s Syndrome, to develop work skills after high school.  She has turned this into a small business and is now working with several individuals who have development challenges, giving them a chance to work and be successful. 

Our students are working side by side with Heart At Work employees to make and package the popcorn, which will in turn be sold and the profit will help this organization continue to build skills and a sense of pride in  young adults.
