Life Skills (1 Month)
A month long course on goal setting, financial management, sexual and emotional health, timekeeping and communication. We also address themes of Resilience, Teamwork, and Leadership. A week-long personal development course facilitated by Heart Styles (www.heartstyles.com) concludes the last month.
Vocational Skills Schools (6 months)
Job Readiness (1 Month)
We offer every student a job shadowing opportunity during job readiness month in November each year with each of the students producing an up to date resume with which to apply for jobs. Students engage in job shadowing, interview preparation and practice as well as resume development. We have engaged a variety of community partners and businesses to help implement this phase.
