FIELD-Recycle, in conjunction with the FIELD CTE Recycle program, is a long-term solution for rural communities. These communities disproportionately suffer from a lack of year-round employment opportunities, lower wages, lack of health and retirement benefits, below-average education levels.
FIELD-Recycle will have a positive impact on these rural communities by providing employment opportunities, as well as inspire the next generation of families that will benefit from their parents having access to jobs that provide higher wages and health benefits.
HOW IT WORKS
FIELD-Recycle, in collaboration with the CTE Recycle Program, will work to provide incubation for FIELD’s vision of student Social Business Enterprises. Students enrolled in the CTE Recycle Pathway will become a member of FIELD-Recycle. This work-based learning program will be the main focus of the CTE Recycle pathway, and in conjunction with FIELD-Recycle, students will receive hands-on experience through the participation and management of recycling centers, systems, and programs.
This program will provide students with the opportunity to interact with both client and vendors to enhance their communication and public speaking skills. It will also provide them with real-world safety experience including various OSHA related topics.
