RTS enrolls up to 45 students per year, we focus on GED prep, life skills and pre-employment training. Over the last several months RTS has had 97% of students graduating with their GEDs and a job or post-secondary education.

Students attended the Job fair at Daytona State Campus, where two students obtained jobs from attending. Workshops this month included, in-house educational and training workshops by Sayskids Bryan Perry, Wells Fargo Bank, Travis Thomas from Flagler Technical Institute, Know the Law presented by DJJ, resume writing assistance. Field trips included the Palm Coast Fire Department, to the ATC campus and the main Daytona State Campus in Daytona.
