KTC CORE students working in kitchen learning knife skillsKTC CORE PROGRAM

Kent Transition Center (KTC) offers an innovative program designed to meet the needs of Kent County's secondary students that are not yet prepared for independent, competitive employment, which is an enrollment requirement for KTC.  The CORE program will better prepare students for adult life by working mainly on career and employability skills, teaching them skills to empower them to participate in their community.

Off-site location for this program:

Mary Free Bed YMCA, 5500 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546

We are happy to partner with the Greater Grand Rapids YMCA, using their facility for our classroom and collaborating with them for hands-on experiences for our students.
