Road to Success Program

RTS started its 8th year and have increased our student enrollments to 50 youth per year. We also have increased our teachers’ hours, allowing them to provide students with additional one-on-one tutoring and job coaching.  RTS has reached 238 GEDs to-date, with 30 students obtaining honors. We continue to keep the classes small with sizes around 6 to 7 students per teacher.  This month students obtained their Food Handlers Certificates and had presentations from FTC, Domestic Abuse Council and DJJs “Know the Law”.  Students worked on their resumes and interviewing skills. Students completed a series of mock interviews set up with local businesses, Habitat for Humanity, Flagler’s Youth Center, Gioia Sails South and with entrepreneur Joe Wright to interview students for the programs paid internships.  Students also completed their Graduation pictures and went on a field trip to the Museum of Arts & Science in Daytona.

Coming up in November and December students will have a series of workshops by the Domestic Abuse Council on healthy relationships and warning signs of abuse.   They will also have presentations from FTC and obtain their First Aid & CPR certifications.   RTS is having their Thanksgiving luncheon in November for all former graduates and current students and staff at Sonny’s BBQ.   Students are having their graduation pictures completed in December and will be taking a field trip to the Daytona International Speedway for a tour.
