Compensation Solutions (CSI), one of the tri-state area’s leading Human Resource Outsourcing Organizations (HRO), is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Wayne Valley High School’s Peer Leadership initiative entitled “Hire-A-Leader.”
The Hire- A – Leader program to take place in June, “allow peers to spend the day with other students and staff members at the school, as a way to gain different perspectives on the Wayne Valley experience,” said one of the teachers of Social Studies and a Peer Leader Advisor at the school. “It is a great way to bridge that gap between all walks of life here at our school,” she added.
Most of the proceeds will be donated to a national charity, Pacer Organization (http://www.pacer.org) that focuses its efforts on “effectively responding to instances of bullying within our school,” the advisor noted. The organization pays specific attention to the treatment of students with special needs.
Additionally, some of the proceeds will be donated to the school’s own transition skills program in the Wayne school district, which looks at the whole student and their needs. Transition services are a coordinated set of activities for students with disabilities, the goal being to promote movement from school to post-school activities, education and employment.
