High School 3 Program Fundraiser “Cooks’ Night Off” Utilizes New Lab

For the 2021-2022 school year, the High School 3 Program is back to raising money to fund field trips!  To earn this money, our students have been working on a “Cooks’ Night Off” fundraiser.  Each month, they work on a family style meal to prepare in the new kitchen!  For October, they worked on lasagna! 

This exciting opportunity allows the students to use math via food measurements, apply safety techniques to ensure food was cooked appropriately, practice safe cooking techniques in the kitchen, and to create an assembly line for building the meal! For November, they worked on gyros, even preparing them for our Advisory Board!

The Independent Living and Life Skills Lab was part of Phase 1 of our Building for Tomorrow capital campaign, thanks to the generosity of the Hine Memorial Fund at The Youngstown Foundation. We are currently at 60% of our goal and look forward to Phase 2 beginning soon! For more details contact Mike Latessa in the Development Office at 330.941.1927.
