The Lincoln County School District Summer Work Experience Education and Training (S.W.E.E.T.) Program works with students ages 16 to 21 who participate in special education or 504 programs, and who are making a transition from school to young adult life. An important component of this transition is learning skills needed for community employment. While some training occurs in the classroom, it is the community-based practice that really helps to build employable skills, officials said.
The S.W.E.E.T. program is partnering with community-based companies to offer students the opportunity to use learned skills in an authentic employment situation.
