Fort Collins High School Shines Bright With Concession Stand.

DSC_0020The Project Unified flag football games are in full swing. While the players are on the field, another group of students are showing their school spirit off the field. DSC_0173Each week a group of students operate a concession stand for the football games. The concession stand is run by student volunteers from Fort Collins High School. Colleen Reyes, the Speech and Language Clinician for FCHS, started the concession stand as a way for students to support fellow Lambkins while also gaining job skill training. Reyes says the concession stand “is DSC_0058giving students opportunities to work with peers, practice customer service and money skills, as well as generalize communication skills outside of the classroom/ therapy setting.”

Student volunteers are tasked with buying prepackaged snacks to sell, setting the DSC_0158stand up, exchanging money, and supporting their school. Volunteers consist of students with and without disabilities. The proceeds from the stand go toward the Fort Collins High School Autism Program.
