Taking Care of Business

Taking Care of Business (TCOB) enables young people to develop pre-vocational skills while developing and implementing a business plan. Participants are challenged to create and run a food service business to serve ErinoakKids staff. This provides an excellent opportunity for youth to explore individual interests and continue their journey towards independence.
Each participant will:
  • apply for jobs in food preparation, money management or marketing;
  • be encouraged to set their own goals and work toward them with guidance and support from ErinoakKids staff and volunteers;
  • have the opportunity to develop skills in the areas of teamwork, communication, organization, money management, shopping, meal preparation and computer use.
Each participant should:
  • be seeing an ErinoakKids occupational therapist who recommends this camp;
  • have the ability to participate in a group setting including group discussions, following directions, attending to a task and problem solving;
  • demonstrate basic literacy, math and organizational skills;
  • be motivated to develop employment skills;
  • have an interest in applying for one of the above mentioned job opportunities.
