Earlier this year, CCER and King County launched the social media presence for Reconnect to Opportunity (ReOpp), a partnership aimed at reconnecting young people ages 16-24 to education and employment opportunities. With a network of more than 30 reengagement providers throughout King County, ReOpp's social media channels have highlighted a few of the unique ways those providers are serving youth.
Most recently, ReOpp featured these photos from the summer "learn and earn" program at New Start High School campus in White Center.
This program has been around for 7 years and is a partnership between
Highline Public Schools
and King County Superior Court, and
integrates academic skills with paid work training, so participants get school credit, gain valuable skills, work along field experts, and go on field trips. The school's impressive "Shark Garden" continues to grow as part of this effort!
