Students Learning Job Skills

PALM COAST, Fla. -- Ashleigh Doeing helped volunteer Barbara Cerasa move a supply cart down a hallway in the emergency room at Florida Hospital Flagler on a recent morning.
The two made sure each room had enough bandages, tape, socks and other staples.
Doeing, a student at Flagler Palm Coast High School, said she sees herself working or volunteering at a hospital. The soft-spoken 20-year-old was able to experience that on Wednesday, when close to 20 Flagler County students with disabilities spent an hour with hospital volunteers.
"It's a way to help people and make them feel better," Doeing said about working in a hospital.
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month and Flagler students with disabilities are job-shadowing volunteers and employees this month at several local workplaces. Those sites include Whispering Meadows Ranch, Target, Publix, Outback Steakhouse and the cities of Palm Coast and Flagler Beach.
