The CIL highlights their High School High Tech program for their 40th anniversary!

The CILNCF turned 40 on October 22nd of last year! In celebration of this milestone, the CIL will be highlighting one program every month this year. Read all about this month’s program highlight below!

In High School High Tech (HSHT), high school students with all types of disabilities aged 14-22 are given opportunities to explore STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), through real-world experiences! During the past month, HSHT students had the opportunity to job shadow some of Santa Fe College’s Career and Technical Education programs for the day. Aidan and Ethan gained hands-on experience as they learned about their HVAC and Carpentry programs. Check out the video for a small glimpse of their day!
