The School-to-Work Initiative

The School-to-Work Initiative is a work study program at Lillian Rashkis High School that offers students the opportunity to develop the types of behaviors and skills that will make them successful in their adult lives. Our goal is to prepare our students to enter the work force as productive and fully participating citizens of the community.

Our work sites include Kings County Hospital, Ft. Hamilton Army Base, Coney Island Hospital, Victory Memorial Hospital and Maimonides Hospital. The work experiences that our students are involved in cover a variety of different areas such as food service, hotel service, retail supermarket training, clerical training, patient care, early childhood training, general maintenance, horticulture, and printing services. Many of our students continue in their placements after graduation as full-time employees. The students in the program are experiencing great success and will graduate from high school prepared to pursue their personal and career goals to the fullest.
