The Lake County Transition to Work (LCTTW) program has many work sites around Lake County. In 2011, the Lake County Educational Service Center established Unique Like Me as the first retail site soley operated by the staff and students of the LCTTW program. All items sold in the store are made by the students. In addition, the students fully participate in the operation of the retail setting including greeting the customers, keeping the store clean, tracking the inventory, and running the cash register.
Unique Like Me is a storefront vocational skills training site, that offers our students with disabilities opportunities to demonstrate their skills and talents and to interact with the community by selling handmade, unique products. Stop and see what this unique setting has to offer you, the students with disabilities of Lake County, and the community as a whole. You are sure to find the perfect gift for you or someone special. Hope to see you there!
