When new students arrive at NWCS who are focused on a vocational path, they begin a
5 step process with our life coaches in our education center.
In addition to educational, therapeutic, and life skills support, NWCS has an emphasis on career development in order to build skills related to employment. We recognize that part of the goal in higher education is a transition into the world of professional work. Transitioning from school to the “real world” is a challenge, and NWCS helps students through this transition.
Areas of Focus and Community Connection:
- Vocational Training and Resume Development
- Guided Job Searching, Skill Building, and Interview Practice
- Professional Job Shadowing
- Continued Learning and Support After Job Placement
- Local Community Volunteering Opportunities
- Paid and Unpaid College Tutoring
In-House Student Internships:
To provide the best learning experience, NWCS provides in-house paid and unpaid part-time internships to our students. These positions include information technology support, web design, academic tutoring, and fitness coaching.
Northwest College Support offers peer lead fitness and activity organization options. Some of these activities range from Swimming, Biking, Running, Weights, Hiking, Camping and local adventure trips. Students organizing these events are lent support from their team, but ultimately get to fill the leadership rolls from organization to execution.
