The School-To-Work Opportunities Act passed in 1994 with the purpose of providing school-to-careers program for the labor industry.

With an understanding that the program can serve both populations, I developed a systematic strategy to establish new relationships with the local labor workforce and collaborate with the at-risk personnel to establish a pathway of success for all students.
