Tech classes help young offenders prepare for future

KSAL StaffFebruary 21, 2015

Young offenders incarcerated at Topeka’s juvenile detention facility are learning technical skills to make them more marketable and less likely to get into trouble after they are released.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex offenders who are still in high school can earn credit through Washburn Institute of Technology.

The principal of the facility’s high school is Steve Dackman. He says students can take classes in basic electrical work, carpentry and something called production technology, which covers basic manufacturing skills and safety.

Those who already have finished high school can take classes on operating water and wastewater treatment, distribution and collection systems through a partnership with Fort Scott Community College.

Offenders also get help learning to write a resume and interviewing for jobs.
