Unionpack is working with the NVUSD's Specialized Vocational Services program to provide meaningful, paid employment to a few of the American Canyon High School graduates.

Unionpack, a leading provider of screw caps and polylam capsules in the wine and spirits industry, is giving back to the community. Working with NVUSD's Specialized Vocational Services program, American Canyon based Unionpack is providing meaningful, paid employment to a few of the American Canyon High School graduates.

Napa High School parent Wendy Rose is CEO and co-founder of the business, which provides screw caps and capsules to the wine, spirits and olive oil industries. She and President Rob Wallace wanted to provide work opportunities for students in special education, and agreed to train three students to assemble and maintain sample packets for Unionpack's sales kits.

After a 40-hour paid training period, Unionpack permanently hired all three students, with an increase in pay!

Thank you to Vocational Specialist Stephanie Solberg, who helped organize this team. Find out more about NVUSD's Specialized Vocational Services at http://www.nvusd.k12.ca.us/svs
