Mayor Gary Christenson recently welcomed Triangle, Inc.’s “School-to-Career” students, ages 18-26 to City Hall. The young adults are focused on the transition from high school to competitive employment and are working on developing their professional skills as well as necessary life skills that will allow them to function more independently in the community or even live on their own in the future. The students are out in the community as much as possible to improve these skills, specifically touring different workplaces and exploring the local area. Triangle believes that the students will benefit far more from being out in the community than from learning in a more traditional classroom setting. The students spent some time in each City department, observing staff and asking questions. Triangle, Inc., located in Malden, serves individuals with disabilities and helps them to lead more independent lives. For more information, please visit www.triangle-inc.org.
