EX_scdExeter Job Corps Academy’s Student Centered Design Team continues to work hard to develop ideas to help students better acclimate, excel and succeed at Job Corps and their career.

The Team created prototypes based on discussions in the Ideation Lab in February. Members initiated six prototypes based on this student feedback. Prototypes included plans for independent living dorms, Career Preparation Period overhaul, an alumni association, more mental health and wellness staff during evening hours, a Chill Zone and a Zen Den.

Students and staff on the Student Centered Design Team presented their creations to 60 students. Students were able to review the prototypes, provide further feedback, add to the concepts and give suggestion on how to improve the prototypes.

The next step is the Testing Phase, which will occur in May. This is when the refined prototypes will be implemented into Center operations.

The Exeter Eagles are extremely excited for this next step!
