Campaign Update | My Intent Project | Aloha High School

This year, Aloha High Transition Specialist, Kristi Cabrera became introduced to the MyIntent Project, the idea behind the popular movement is to build one another up rather than bring one another down by sharing a word that sparks conversation and connections.

We have been inspired to not only create bracelets for our students in our work experience program but use these as a fundraising opportunity for our vocational training program.  Our students have learned how to create charms using a word that resonates with each particular student buying one.  We would love to see every student at Aloha High School wearing one! Beaverton’s Choice was a great fit for our campaign and with support from the community and matching funds from BEF, we were funded within 6 days!  Our special education students have enjoyed being a part of something larger.  They helped run the tables at lunch with our kick-off several weeks ago and delivered the bracelets and necklaces to the general education students in their classes.  I have loved seeing the interaction when the delivery occurs.  We have longed for a way to better include our students within the student body and for them to feel more included. Thank you to BEF for getting us started!” ~Kristi Cabrera, Transition Specialist TOSA

The actual outcomes of this project are even better than the expected.  The program has been wildly popular and is being considered as a vocational training project at all 6 high schools in the district  Overall this was an excellent opportunity and afforded students additional opportunities to explore and benefit from learning about running a business with keeping track of orders, making flyers, and keeping a budget.
