Today marks the 1 year anniversary of our partnership with Cotting School in Lexington MA. It has been nothing short of an honor to have our office located on the campus of this school since June 21st of last year.
For those of you who don’t know, Cotting School has a 124 year history of providing world class education to kids, youth and young adults with disabilities. Cotting’s mission of enabling students with special needs to reach their highest learning potential and level of independence is right in line with Waypoint’s mission and objectives. We couldn’t imagine a better fit!
As part of our collaboration, Waypoint is providing work opportunities for three groups of students each week throughout the school year. It’s been hugely helpful to us and provides the students “on campus” vocational opportunities to help them prepare for future “off campus” employment.
To celebrate the one year mark of our partnership and the start of the summer, we took these three groups of students on a hike at the Blue Hills Reservation. It was a day filled with fun, challenge and discovery that will deepen our relationships and strengthen our bond.
On to the next year…!
