The transition from high school to higher education, occupational training, or a career can be difficult for students—especially those who are considered “at-risk.” Extra career planning assistance came today for students attending El Centro Jr./Sr. High School, a Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Juvenile Court School program at the Sacramento County Youth Detention Facility.

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:

  • 3Strands Global Foundation
  • Boys & Girls Club
  • Discovery Challenge Academy
  • Employment Development Department (EDD)
  • Job Corps
  • La Familia Family Counseling Center
  • Northern California Construction Training (NCCT)
  • North State Building Association
  • Sacramento LGBT Community Center
  • Sacramento Metro Fire Department
  • Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps
  • SMUD
  • Southgate Recreation and Park District
  • US Army
  • Western Pacific Truck School

SCOE provides a junior and senior high school curriculum for students housed in facilities supervised by the Sacramento County Probation Department. The education program utilizes a standards-aligned curriculum and career technical education to provide relevant learning experiences for students. In partnership with Probation, the program helps students develop and implement a student success plan for effective living and learning, preparing them for a future without recidivism.
