Fresh Brews & Dreams: Grand Opening of the AHS Coffee Cart

The Anna ISD 18+ Transition program students launched their Coyote Coffee Cart today. This was their ‘soft opening’ at AHS. Transition teacher Janet Darr says that the Coyote Coffee Cart is a hands-on experience for students with disabilities to develop real work skills in providing a service to Anna High School faculty while gaining valuable skills to transition into adulthood.

The goal of Coyote Coffee Cart is to provide an opportunity for students with disabilities to develop the required skills necessary to obtain paid employment in the community upon completion of the 18+ Transition program. With this project, these students will develop communication skills when greeting customers and getting their coffee orders. The students will practice operating a small business with an inventory of supplies, cash flow, and marketing. Students will be responsible for preparing the coffee, taking, and completing orders accurately, and cleaning up. Ms. Darr says. “Practicing these skills is valuable to the growth of the student to become successful in a paid job.”

The Anna Education Foundation funded the Coyote Coffee Cart through the ‘Grants for Great Ideas’ program.
