Information about Student Services
Veterans & Youth Career Collaborative is proud to provide a wide range of support services to students to make sure they get the most out of their education. Services include:
- Career Development
- Student Retention Strategies
- Academic Advising
- Testing center
- Job Placement Assistance
Career development education is handled by our school case managers. The case manager meets with new students and discusses their career plans. The case manager is able to obtain student information and feedback by listening, evaluating previous work experience, provide skills assessment, and asking questions. In addition, students may obtain the assistance of the case manager, in writing a resume when they approach graduation or upon completion.
Student Retention – Your Satisfaction & Success is Our Top Priority
Student retention is a strong area for the Veterans & Youth Career Collaborative. Attendance sheets are turned in to the case managers. If a student misses a class without an excuse, the student is contacted by the case manager. If the case manager is unable to resolve the issue or contact the student, the matter is turned over to the school Director of Operations who attempts to contact the student. The case manager’s goal is to help the student resolve issues, which may prevent class attendance. The case manager may telephone the student, schedule a face-to-face meeting, including the Director of Operations, or in extreme cases involve the Executive Director. The case manager may modify a student’s schedule to help the student cope with life’s stresses. The case manager may determine the student has a disability. If the student needs accommodations to continue, the case manager will work with the student. The case manager may contact state vocational services, obtain the necessary accommodation if possible, or adjust training hours or classroom conditions as applicable.
Our school is an authorized Certiport and NFR testing center, which provides students the opportunity to test for Microsoft and Customer Service certifications on campus.
