ACTION ITEM

 

SUBJECT

Boys’ Home Trades Program

RATIONALE

Last month I presented you with a copy of the Operational Agreement between Boys’ Home and Alleghany County Schools.  An advisory committee has been formed to discuss and to develop a “Trades Program” (possibly HVAC courses) to share across cities/counties without adding to the burdens of the school systems.  The advisory committee is comprised of members from local school divisions, Boys’ Home staff, Dabney S. Lancaster Community College, local business people and other members at large.  Through the sharing of resources of all entities, opportunities would be available for young people to learn a skill or trade to enhance future employment.
