Wentworth Training Program Philosophy:
The Wentworth Training program is for Boston Public School students ages 18-22 in Special Education. This is a community based vocational training program that will produce internships, externships, employment and postgraduate opportunities in the field of Facility Management, Hospitality, Customer Service, Business Management & Public Works (recycling).
This is an authentic work experience. Students are given job titles, work IDs, expectations, evaluations and raises. Our programs sets high expectations from the very beginning to ensure our community-based partners get the best of BPS.
As a professional contractor, we are accountable for results. The students’ tasks and evaluations are based not only on their personal growth, but also on their productivity in the contracted work. Student learning is maximized as students are able to set goals for their own learning and mastery of projects and skills.
