Our COVID-19 T-Shirts

Anthony, a student at Skills Academy, has chosen to use his Economic Impact Payment for a community service project. Here is information about his t-shirt fundraiser for coronavirus first responders, if you would like to support this project. 

Fox 21 News interviewed Anthony and his grandmother about his project–you might want a tissue or two handy when you watch it: 

Funds are being raised through the purchase of a short sleeve t-shirt with printing that Anthony designed. Or if you would like to donate only, that is very welcome, too.

Person-Centered Programs

Skills Academy is dedicated to providing a person-centered program (P-CP) for their students. Full implementation of this program will include, but is not limited to:

  • P-CP write-up on each student to include all likes, dislikes, goals, dreams, etc.
  • Bi-monthly one-on-one meetings with the student to fine tune the P-CP plan.
  • Training aimed at helping students reach their goals.
  • Dedicated counselors to work with the student on their goals.



Keys to Success

  • Partnering with non-profits that serve the special needs community. (Like Special Olympics)
  • Partnering with local school districts to offer transition programs.
  • Keeping the focus on the student and their individual needs.
  • Growing in a controlled fashion where the students are fully engaged.
  • Partnering with the community to help with job placement for students.
