Minuteman Press partners with MOSAIC program to help students

A local printing company is partnering with an important educational program to help create new opportunities for students.

Humble’s Minuteman Press presented a $250 donation to the Humble Independent School District’s MOSAIC program on Thursday, December 5, during the program’s resource fair.

The MOSAIC program focuses on the future of students studying at the Cambridge School, which is a school geared toward helping students with special needs. MOSAIC stands for Meeting Our Students’ Academic and Individual Challengers. The program focuses on helping students learn life skills necessary to meeting the challenges of adult life after graduation. There are four areas directly addressed by the MOSAIC program: employment, adult living, recreation and leisure, and lifelong learning.

Students are guided through the process of gaining social, behavioral, and academic skills that will allow them a better chance at success after graduation. Students from the Cambridge School sit on the board for the program, and they have a voice in how the program works, so it can continue to provide a personalized approach to learning, which is helpful to many special needs students.

Minuteman Press has previously employed MOSAIC students, including two in the last year. This training allowed the students to learn important job skills in the printing industry. Due to this, the MOSAIC resource fair was the perfect opportunity for Minuteman Press to present their donation, since the resource fair helps students learn about employment opportunities in their community, and how to find and keep those jobs.
