The article quotes program coordinator Noah McKay and describes how students in the Green Vision school-to-work program earn a paycheck while recycling electronics and home appliances to help keep e-waste out of landfills:
According to Y.A.L.E. Program Coordinator Noah McKay, the job for the teachers and staff at Y.A.L.E. is to teach students to be productive, make better choices and to take responsibility for the choices they make.
McKay said the school also wanted to find a pathway to teaching students new skills and a way to develop those skills into the work place and earn some money for their effort. Through a lot of research they found Green Vision and it has been a very good match for the Y.A.L.E. students.
