Post Secondary Students Complete Internship and Get Hired

Two students in the SCUSD post secondary program participated in a 6-month paid internship program at Bon Appétit Management Company. Bon Appétit operates all the cafes for dozens of high tech companies in the Bay Area, and they sponsor an internship program called PossAbilities.

This program provides adult students with disabilities an opportunity to learn the many aspects of restaurant work. These skills can lead to employment within the company or can be applied to work in another restaurant. Students Steven and Jennifer completed the program in May and have been hired by Bon Appétit! They are the first SCUSD post secondary students to participate in the internship and to be hired.

A special thank you to the many people that participated in this success including Haley Bridges and the Bon Appétit team and our SCUSD staff — Mary Gudgeon, Mara Sidam, Michelle Ray, and Kathleen Lane.
