Taking Care of Business

TCOB enables young people with disabilities 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. Youth have the opportunity to explore individual interests and continue their journey toward 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 program
  • 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
