This program is a high school transition program developed for Greenburgh North Castle UFSD and is targeted for students whose main goal is competitive employment. At the completion of a successful internship the student receives a Career Development and Occupational Skills Credential. Since the onset of the program in October, 2014 the interns have accrued over 10,000 hours at Andrus on Hudson.
A student’s typical day includes classroom instruction at Andrus on Hudson and immersion in internship locations and rotations throughout our facility, while simultaneously receiving feedback from instructors and job coaches. The rotations are designed to complement each student’s interests, skills, and strengths. Students participate in a variety of internship areas including Recreation, Housekeeping, Dietary, Business, Beauty Salon, and Maintenance.
These students have the advantage of learning new job skills. Our seniors benefit by their assistance and the opportunity to interact with young people at Bingo and other games, and in our hair salon, dining room, auditorium and lobby.
