- Business Advocacy
Alhambra Unified School District's Board of Education recognized the community businesses and leaders that support the Learning Independence for Transition Program. LIFT, as the organization is more commonly known, focuses on teaching life skills to special education students ages 18 – 22.
Nearly 20 local businesses and agencies support and participate in the program, providing vocational experience for students. Throughout these experiences, young adults learn skills such as communication, money management, self-care, home maintenance, and self-advocacy. During a board meeting Feb. 4, elected officials gave special thanks to the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce, All Souls World Language Catholic School, Atherton Baptist Home, Alhambra Teachers Association, Charlie's Trio, Frida Pickles, Home Depot, JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores, McCormick's Pet Emporium, Alhambra Superior Courthouse, Walgreens, South Pasadena/San Marino YMCA, YMCA of West San Gabriel Valley, Alhambra Golf Course, Cal State University – Los Angeles, Big T's Mini Mart, Ritter's Restaurant, and Smart N Final for providing meaningful experiences to the district's LIFT students and for their contributions to promoting quality education.
