Recipes 4 Learning offers local High School students an opportunity to earn community service hours at our Huntington, NY facility. There, students will assist in assembling and packing cookie kits.
You can volunteer as an individual, as a group of a High School club or High Schools can arrange volunteer groups with Recipes 4 Learning directly.
Recipes 4 Learning offers vocational training opportunities to young adults who are transitioning out of the educational system. There are two ways we offer this program:
High School Special Seniors
High Schools can arrange for High School special education classes to receive all the elements of Recipes 4 Learning Cookie Kits which have been ordered for an elementary class. The Special Seniors class assembles the Cookie Kits and then deliver them to the elementary classes directly. The assembly process of the kit offers first steps in vocational training either in class or at our facility. We provide detailed instructions for educators to guide students in assembling the kits. No food preparation is required.
Employment at Recipes 4 Learning
We also offer limited-time employment opportunities to young adults with different abilities where they are mentored, trained and supported in being in a workplace environment.
Our goal is to staff 50% of the Recipes 4 Learning employees with people with different abilities. If you are an individual, school, organization or know someone who would benefit from Recipes 4 Learning, please contact us.
Recipes 4 Learning is a 501(c)3 Non profit raising funds that positively impact the future of young adults with disabilities and also supports elementary school-aged children with a hands-on learning experience.
