Students visit local nonprofit organization
Mr. Lee’s Business and Finance Class went on a field trip to Union Diversified Industries. Union Diversified Industries is a nonprofit business located in Monroe, NC. UDI is actually the oldest nonprofit organization in Union County.
Upon entering the business we were greeted by Director Mike Young. We began a tour exploring how UDI incorporates work with developmental skills for adults with developmental disabilities.
UDI receives contracts from local business for assembly of certain parts. UDI then pays adults with developmental disabilities a wage to work and assemble these parts.
Student Angel Rivera said, “This is one of the greatest things I have ever seen. It makes them feel the same as everybody else in the world and teaches them to be independent.”
