The transition from high school to the real world can be difficult and stressful for many students—especially for young people who are considered high risk. Help came today to dozens of students who attend the Juvenile Court School​ Program operated by the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE​) inside El Centro Jr./Sr. High School.

Students had a chance to meet prospective employers and learn about job hunting techniques, as well as how to access post-secondary and community resources from the following:

  • Adolfo Housing for Emancipated Youth
  • California National Guard Youth Challenge Programs - Grizzly Youth Academy
  • California Conservation Corps
  • Crossroads Career Center
  • Curam College of Nursing/Chicks in Crisis
  • Department of Apprenticeship Standards
  • Employment Development Department
  • Foster Youth Services
  • Ink Off Me
  • La Familia Career Center
  • Northern California Construction Training
  • Project TEACH
  • Sacramento Chinese Community Service Youth Employment Specialist
  • SMUD
  • Volunteers of America
  • Youth Employment Opportunity Program​

SCOE provides a junior and senior high school curriculum for students who are detained in facilities that are supervised by the Sacramento County Probation Department​. The education programs utilize standards-aligned curriculum and career-technical education to provide relevant learning experiences for students. These schools provide the means for students to develop and implement a student success plan for effective living and learning. In partnership with the Sacramento County Probation Department, students prepare for transition to a future without recidivism.​
