PARIS – The Andrews Council on Transition has provided the Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School Life Skills Program with a $400 grant.

The money is used to transport students to and from their “off-campus” jobs. The special education vocational experience program has six students working at Pawsibilities, the Responsible Pet Care Thrift Shop; Market Square Health Care Center; the Little Jungle; and helping with the Oxford Hills Middle School Special Olympics Team.

Two to three students work twice a week at the jobs with a coach. Students gain skills in the jobs they are performing as well as social skills and good work habits, and can explore various types of work.
