The Scioto County Board of Developmental Disabilities (SCBDD) Bridges program held a graduation ceremony for nine participants of the six-week program on July 25 at the Vocation Station.
Bridges assists under-served areas of the state in developing employment services for youth with developmental disabilities as they transition from school to employment. The students participate in job shadowing, job coaching and a variety of educational opportunities to help them achieve their employment goals.
The overall goal of the project is to enhance career exploration options and increase employment outcomes by developing a collaborative network of services that will assist students in achieving their employment goals.
Those graduating from the program include: Jeromy Cooper, Jonathan Maynard, Chelsee Stiltner, James Charles, Jacee Yearwood, Ivy Crabtree, James Madden, Ricky Kelley, Tyler King and Dustin Adkins.
