HOOVER – On Friday, June 21, Jefferson State’s Culinary Institute and Horizons School will co-host a Second Immersion Day for Young Adults with Disabilities.

Prospective students, teachers and parents are invited to explore this program at Jefferson State’s Shelby-Hoover Campus.

“Horizons School is very pleased to collaborate with Jefferson State to establish this innovative Fundamental Cook Certificate to bridge the gap to employment for young adults with learning differences, and also meet the needs of community employers,” said Horizon School Executive Director Dr. Brian Geiger.

The agenda includes a welcome by Culinary faculty, refreshments by Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe and a facility tour.

Participants will practice hands-on skills such as hand washing, preparing and cleaning work areas, knife cuts, sorting utensils, and sequencing foods for a complete meal.

Representatives from Jefferson State’s enrollment services, financial aid, ADA accommodations and the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services will share information about admissions and student services.

Horizons School will provide support services for students with learning disabilities through fee for service contracting.
