Community-based instruction is a vital part of our students’ education. It provides real-world learning experiences that help students meet their goals after graduation in the areas of employment, post-secondary education and training, and independent living.
While we provide many unique and engaging opportunities in the classroom and school setting – including a student-run store in our Approved Private School (The Day School) – we have created opportunities to extend learning and skill-building into community settings. From gardening opportunities with our friends at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, to sorting medical supplies at Global Links, to helping with the J Café at AgeWell at the JCC, and more, our students learn to build independence in workplace and volunteer settings.
