Our kids have been working on several different Construction Projects as they make their way through the NCCER (National Center for Construction and Educational Research) Certification process.
Today was a proud day for several of our students who completed the Aggression Replacement Training (ART) group. The group is an intensive (3 days per week for 10 weeks) and has skill streaming, moral reasoning and anger control components. Youth had to complete and pass an exam pertaining to information they learned throughout the 10 week course. The group began with 12 youth and six of those youth successfully passed the 10 week group and exam. Above is a picture of 4 of the youth that received their certificates today along with the group facilitators Mrs. Celia and Mr. Carter. To appreciate their hard work and success, we will be BBQ-ing for them later in the week!
Join us in congratulating our students on their awesome accomplishment!
