A chance to work in our automotive program
You’ve read about the high school program we have in the Robison Service car complex in Springfield. Our unique school has been profiled in news stories and on New England Public Radio.

The successful applicant will divide their time between the automotive program located in the Robison Service Auto Complex at 347 Page Boulevard in Springfield. This school-industry collaboration represents a unique teaching opportunity. It is not a traditional vocation program. Rather, we’re teaching life skills in the context of this automotive business, and we believe this will help any high school student who is wrestling with the challenges of career/college transition.
The successful applicant may also have the opportunity to teach automotive technology and life skills to area high school students who participate in work study programs in our complex, and you may be able to teach adults in after-hours programs.
As an autistic adult who was unable to finish high school this program is particularly important to me. Lots of people talk about equal opportunity and affirmative action, but we need to do more than talk – we need to live it. We have a societal duty to help those of us who are different succeed and thrive, and this program is one small step toward that goal.
