Ottawa Township High School’s Transition Program serves young adults with disabilities ages 18-21 who work to gain functional job, social, and life skills. The transition house provides students the opportunity to gain and practice these skills in a home life setting. Students were observed planning their weekly schedule, which included the chores they would be responsible for in the house.
Rachael empties the dryer, Megan folds the clean towels, and Raven prepares a morning beverage.
As a part of the program, instructor Kate McIntyre has initiated a work project in the transition house. Students are a part of a small business in which they bottle and label liquid hand soap for resale. Jobs include filling the soap bottles, capping the bottles, ensuring the bottles are wiped clean, custom labeling, and finally quality control.
Kylee fills bottles of “Safe Now”.
The soap, “Safe Now”, is fully biodegradable, earth-friendly, and has no added fragrance or coloring. The soap is currently for sale in four retail locations, LaynaBella’s, Handy Foods, Jeremiah Joes, and the OSF hospital gift shop. The soap is $4.00 and any profits benefit the OHS transition house.
“Safe Now” is available at Ottawa Handy Foods.
