A program at Kenmore East High School has been helping students develop their job readiness skills and prepare them for a paid internship this summer.

The Steps to Work program at Kenmore East is serviced by Adult Career and Continuing Education Services – Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCESS-VR) and Community Services. Participating students have been staying after school one day a week to learn about job skills such as how to search for a job, interview skills, and resume writing. The program also helps the students acquire a paid internship for the coming summer.

They recently had the opportunity to tour the University at Buffalo Campus Dining and Shops. They toured the Crossroads Culinary Center, an all-you-can-eat dining facility, and the Ellicott Food Court. Students learned how each place operates, the importance of each place to the residents and students of UB, and opportunities for employment.

Other topics include traveling via Metro bus and even possible job opportunities for those who qualify.
