There are pictures of him working at Green Mountain College and working with his VABIR counselor, Cindy Senecal. VABIR works with students to secure jobs. They work on job skills, job experience, job coaching, and stipends. They work on realistic skills such as job interviews, resumes writing, workplace tours, and job applications. Students set goals with counselors who help them achieve their dreams. VABIR has created wonderful relationships with businesses in all communities of Vermont.

Program on Sexting: Public Welcome
On Friday Feb. 26, several students from Stafford Technical Center's SADD Chapter, all of whom are involved in the Public Safety Services Program, and their instructor, will present a workshop on the topic of "sexting" during a Block 5 schoolwide assembly, which will begin at 1:25 p.m. in the gym.
Sexting is a relatively new phenomenon which involves sending sexually explicit or provocative messages, cartoons, or photos of naked or semi-nude people by cell phone or computer.
Sexting is much more common than many parents think. Sexting can be a form of bullying and can also result in a number of criminal charges being brought against the sender or receiver of the photos, particularly if one of them is a minor. Parents are welcome to join us for this important presentation.
