Programs available for teens include, but are not limited to, college and career prep, entrepreneurial training, leadership development and vocational training with focus areas in hospitality and culinary arts, automotive technology, coding, plumbing, carpentry and music and video production. Classes are led by trained professionals, business partners and field experts. The facility opened in 2016 thanks to lead support from Board member Tom Shapiro, and wife Debbie Shapiro.
