High School Youth Visit Ft. Simcoe Job Corps Center
On May 15 we took our Youth Transition Students to the Fort Simcoe Job Corps Center to tour the campus and see all the different trades available at this particular site. Job Corps is a no-cost education and career technical training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16 through 24 improve the quality of their lives through career technical and academic training.
We had a great tour guide, Miranda Olson, along with three students from the Job Corps program to answer any questions, and introduce everyone to most of the instructors.
Rebecca Rocha, one of our Youth Transition Instructors from Sunnyside, said, “we had a good response from the students they all had fun.”
We were informed about how the instructors work with a student that has an IEP from school, and how the student will be allowed extra time and extra assistance if needed. We also learned other life skills that the student will have the opportunity to learn while attending Job Corps.
