Roche Arena Partners with The Burke to Provide Job Training for Students

FMC and Jim Roche Community Arena in West Roxbury, Mass are proud to have partnered with Jeremiah E. Burke High School for over ten years on their job training program.

The Burke partners with local organizations to provide job training opportunities to autistic and special needs students as part of their graduation and transition out of the school. Students in the job training program at Roche have the opportunity to learn skills and work around the arena doing maintenance and custodial services to prepare them to obtain a job and support themselves after graduation. This year, the students and teachers sent Holiday cards and notes of appreciation to Dennis Caulfield, our Arena Manager.

We appreciate the opportunity to help these students learn valuable skills that will help them obtain jobs when they graduate from The Burke.
