THE SCHOOLS SHOULD LOVE THIS

The Minnesota Valley Action Council (MVAC) has a summer youth program to give enrichment and teach valuable life skills to youth in need in the nine county area. This year the youth were able to learn how to work and perform the following skills: photo shop work, cleaning, food service, auto body, clerical, horse grooming, shelving videos, assisting day care workers and others. The staff at MVAC was able to develop standards and values for the work that the young people performed and as a result 108 youth got credit to apply towards graduation from high school. The number of credits ranged from one half a credit to three credits. These came to the various school districts at no cost. The program is truly a win/win. end
