     Mock Business Work Experience
     
    The mock businesses include the  Grocery Store, Cafe, Post Office, Bank, and Medical Offices.   Young adults practice money, time, budget, using a cash register,  filling out applications, making grocery lists, bagging groceries taking inventory, writing a check, addressing envelops, along with other functional forms, resumes, mock interviews and other employable skills.

    Young adults also practice greeting and assisting customers, appropriately waiting in line, asking for assistance.
