NECC’s Vocational Program allows students aged 14 and older to work up to four hours a week either in the community or within the school through NECC’s Career Development Center. Students like Anders learn important skills through jobs like his at J. White Automotive in Bellingham.
Julie LeBlanc, vocational specialist for NECC, was nominated by a colleague because she “goes above and beyond to ensure our students have access to meaningful vocational opportunities and are making progress. She is so thoughtful and really tailors things to each individual student's needs and abilities.”
