APPRENTICESHIPS

During the summer months the Passport Program will host a six week apprenticeship at PSMS where students will explore different careers and engage in community service relevant to that particular field. Participants will be provided with a snack at each session that meets USDA nutritional snack guidelines. The areas of apprenticeship are listed below.

Happy Home • Students will work with a master handy man from Trinity Family Homes, an organization that builds home, to create needed items to give to new homeowners in the Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity Program. Student groups will each be assigned one family, and each home will receive a bench, tool box, and key holder that will be handcrafted and decorated by the students. While making items for donation, students will receive an in-depth look into the career of carpentry and utilize a large amount of math skills for calculations.

Junior Counselor • Students will work with a professional counselor and engage in activities that teach students how to deal with stress, peer mediation, and character education.
•Mindful Strategies Professional Counseling will provide direct instruction and be a field trip site so that students can see how a professional counseling center operates. The students will also tour House of Dawn Second Chance Home in Jonesboro, GA., a facility that utilizes counselors on a daily basis.
• Students will be provided with stress management training with the intention that they can pass this information onto other young people. Following their training, the students’ stress management skills will be evaluated and they will role-play how to talk to other young people about stress management. Once the students are comfortable, they will visit House of Dawn Second Chance Home and offer stress training to the youth in the shelter. Youth who participate in the training will fill out a questionnaire of the trainings effectiveness.

911 Emergencies • Students will explore the medical profession and the many avenues in which one can serve in a medical emergency, such as life flight pilot, EMT, radiologist, and other less known medical careers.
• Students will also learn key skills to keep themselves safe during an emergency situation.
