High School Students Tour NCC Job Training Programs
High school students from Washington Academy in Belleville recently received an eye-opening tour of New Community Workforce Development Center’s job training programs, guided by Director of Workforce Development Rodney Brutton. The students learned about NCC’s vocational training programs such as the ShopRite Supermarket Careers Program, led by Instructor Sadrud-Din Shah; Building Trades Training Program, led by Instructor William Robinson; Automotive Technician Employment and Training Program, led by Instructor John Zaccheus; and Culinary Arts Specialist Program, led by Instructor Jonathan Butler. Teens attending Washington Academy have been placed at the private school by their former public schools as a result of disabilities, ranging from learning or emotional disabilities to autism and other health impairments. In the above left photo, Butler speaks to the teens at the Culinary Café inside Extended Care before the group takes a tour of the kitchen and enjoys lunch. In the above right photo, two automotive students, Charles E. Daniels (left) and Kirk Ward (right) briefly chat with the teens during their tour of the Automotive Training Center.
