Students from Connections, 203’s post secondary school transition program, gave a presentation about MicroConnections, which offers creative work opportunities for young adults with disabilities.
“Our microbusiness supports learning and vocational growth, there are more than 50 job-training opportunities. MicroConnections allows students to develop work communication and social skills. Connection job coaches will provide guidance, instruction and support to facilitate success,” said Jasmin Sanchez, a student in the Connections program.
Current projects include re-purposing donated flowers, creating handmade crafts and making fleece blankets that are donated back to the community.
After the presentation, the students were surprised with the district’s mission maker award.
The board also approved a three-year contract with Athletico for athletic training at Naperville North and Central.
