My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Jobtrain, Inc., Menlo Park, CA, USA
I am an autism specialist for SEUHSD assigned to Woodside H.S. I enrolled in the academy to perfect my skills in culinary science in hopes of applying the content to my classroom. I am developing a transition curriculum for ASD students of which CA is part of the offering. Chef Adam's cause is outstanding for my intention. His teaching style is one to be emulated by all certs. His capacity to retrieve highly challenging learners is exemplary! I am taking back to my classroom a full year of coursework i.e. content methodology, strategies, equipment, materials. By the by, I am a full time student who will divide up her enrollment calendar as follows: 3x week July-Aug, 2x week Dec, 7x week summer 2009. [This review was transcribed by a GreatNonprofits staff member.]
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
-Chef Adams vibrant, positive, insightful manner -Location!!! An "authentic" community-based setting is the gold standard in transition, rehabilitation services.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Competent culinary specialists, business managers with a collaborative manner and spirit.
Ways to make it better...
-My professional calendar did not require my attendance at WSHS. -I could have brought my teaching team into the setting for their exposure to content and approach!
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
-Funding -Public Awareness -Bring JobTrain into every high school classroom-- students need to know availability of training begins
