The GEMnasium Experience: Creating a Recycling Enterprise for Individuals in Recovery
Throughout the Spring semester, Engineering Analysis students have worked in the GEMnasium to explore the creation of a recycling enterprise for individuals in recovery from addiction. This project aims to demonstrate the process taken by the class to design an enterprise that merges wellness activities with work responsibilities. It explores how the enterprise can assist with re-entry as well as the continuation of the recovery process. Wellness, job training, funding, and community input were considered throughout the design process. The recycling enterprise will be presented to Montgomery County officials with the hope to implement the designed program in the county.
