Our classroom is highly involved in obtaining outsourced jobs within the vocational classrooms in the building and in the past as a partner with businesses in the community such as the Free Press Marathon and Metcom Inc. We have worked on packaging skills to obtain these jobs and are always seeking other similar types of work.
