Each summer, students from the Work Skills Preparation Program (WSPP) volunteer at TBBC to help inspect our books, label brochures and assist with mailings. TBBC always looks forward to their time in our office. Their presence brightens our days!
The WSPP is a partnership between The College of New Jersey’s Center for Sensory and Complex Disabilities (TCNJ) and the New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI). WSPP offers students with physical impairments and vision challenges the opportunity to make the transition from high school to the workplace by “sampling” different jobs within the community. Each student is assigned a job coach and lives on the TCNJ campus for four weeks to enhance independent living skills.
TBBC staffer, Mary Crain, always ensures the students receive a warm welcome and helps to shepherd them through their tasks. We thank them all greatly for the help they give to TBBC and to our members.
