College Transition Retreat
On April 13th and 14th, we took our students to the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center to participate in a college transition retreat. Since most of our students are graduating, we decided that instead of taking them on a college field trip we would support our students by helping them transition to college.
As part of the retreat, students participated in numerous workshops such as learning how to create their college schedule and a panel of folks who work at the colleges and universities. We also had our students participate in physical activities such as the ropes course and zip lining as a metaphor for learning to take risks and being excited about their futures.
