Real-World Skills One Cup at a Time
Real World: Robinson Elementary will impact our students that struggle with functional skills by giving them situations that will encourage them to transfer social skills learned in the resource and therapeutic settings. Through the implementation of life skills groups across the school coupled with the mentorship of regular education students, our students will be given greater opportunities to gain confidence in the ability to function in the community. Therefore increasing their likelihood of success in transitioning beyond our school. From caring for a class pet, exploring our community and participating in the coffee business our students will be entrepreneurs, active community citizens and caretakers. All of which could not be accomplished without the innovations that will be made possible without this grant.
