Employment Education provides students the
opportunity to acquire and apply work skills in order
to be able to hold jobs out in the community. Because
work is such an important part of our adult lives,
exposure to various career paths enables students to
pursue endeavors that suit their interests and abilities.
Students at the Boston Higashi School begin employment
education during High School, where they
build a foundation for maintaining employment. We
strive to ensure that all students enjoy work, have
a sense of responsibility, develop work stamina, can
follow directions, and are able to be flexible enough
to work across a range of settings and with a variety
of people. As students develop these essential skills,
they are introduced to practical employment training
on campus as part of their High School experience.
the Emergence Division, students are able to secure employment education in the community for up to 20 -
30 hours per week. Upon graduation, students have a
work history with a resumé, employer references, and
letters of recommendation - tools that enable students
to secure future employment opportunities.
