Wichita WIN has accepted a new contract project for program participants: sewing Velcro straps for Retractapad retractable foam knee pads, a new product manufactured in Wichita.
Contract project work, such as this, provides participants with work experience while helping provide program funds.
As part of the WIN program, participants receive a salary for 20 hours each week, during which they perform work projects and attend group and individual therapy, life and job skills classes, meet with their tutors or professional mentors.
Other ongoing work projects include:
- Programing and assembling components for Filimin Wi-Fi enabled lamps
- Making hand-dipped pretzels, sold by area retailers and through WIN
We are always seeking additional short-term or long-term project work that can be done at the WIN facilities by our participants. Send work proposals to Amber Beck, 262-3960.
