Road to Success Update

Road to Success Update

The Road to Success (RTS) program has reached 344 GEDs to date, with 1 student graduating in September. We have a 98% positive outcome since the beginning of the program. During September, PNC Bank spoke to our students and our Ice-House Entrepreneurial Mindset course, a student success class, ended. The final meeting for the entrepreneurial class was a radio interview for Flagler Health Matters, on WNZF. Additionally, the RTS staff attended the Workforce Professional Development Summit in Orlando. Our three student interns continue working at the Belle Terre Swim & Racquet Club, Flagler Youth Center, and Shoreline Turf & Pest Control. We are always looking to partnering with local companies for internships. To find out about the GED program or the student internships, please contact Brian Willard at 386.437.8279.
