NEW! Project WOW has recently been retooled this year. Specific improvements to the program include updated curriculum and text books, post-secondary counseling and enrollment assistance, and the addition of digital literacy instruction. A new classroom has been added with computers and individualized workstations. The program has also hired new instructors as well as a Youth Job Developer and Career Pathways Manager.
As covered recently in a Northeast Times newspaper feature story, the program also helps students with whatever needs they have. “Anything I needed help with I could just ask for and get help,” said one student.
