Build on It!

In 2014, the Department of Labor (DOL) identified the value in, and thus need for, young adults to obtain “stackable credentials.” With many youth moving away from four-year universities and focusing on more vocational trades, the DOL has stressed the importance in creating new opportunities for our youth to become responsible, capable citizens.

Toby Wells Blue Apple Ranch offers a variety of Build On It! workshops with certificates in the following categories: Customer Service; Image and Appearance; Telephone; Email and Social Media Skills; Workplace Etiquette; Leadership in the Workplace; Basic Business Math; First Aid and CPR Training; and Keys to Success. Additionally, as BAR continues to explore and expand its offerings, they are working with the local Girls Scout organization and planning to pilot several badge and patch workshops in the fall that will be suited to this organization’s specific needs. By offering specialty workshops and clinics, within the welcoming arms of a unique ranch, they will not only be making a meaningful difference in the lives of youth, but will be broadening both their scope and outreach within the community.
