This year we have added additional staff to accommodate for COVID, social emotional learning and social distancing throughout our BIG little school. Programming consist of our outstanding life skills, and work base training. In addition, we are now providing intensive vocational in-class training for all students. With this addition, students are provided skill development on resume writing, and job readiness training. At this time we are proud to announce that all students have completed their resumes, and are currently working on cover letters.
We have secured the Lake County Workforce Grant - Career Crossroads Program, which allows us to provide paid training for 10 students. Students that are afforded this great opportunity must be a graduating senior with an Individual Educational Plan, or have completed 3 years at the transition program. From this program 6 students will be given an opportunity to participate over the summer in our paid internship program.r.
Stayed tuned because we have more awesome programming coming that we will unveil before the end of the year!
