First WRaP camp finishes at Currey Ingram Academy
Our first four-week, pre-employment camp for teens on the spectrum, called the Workforce Readiness and Preparation camp, or simply WRaP, finished at the end of June. This WRaP was held at Currey Ingram Academy, with two of their teachers, Scott Field and Trevor McKey, serving as coaches, under the direction of Jane Hannah and Joy Young and with additional support from Stephanie Diaconis of Specialisterne, the Danish company that first pioneered the 4-week program. Field, McKey, and Young flew to New Jersey earlier this year to train for this camp under the guidance of Dianconis.
In the coming years, we’re planning running this camp on an annual basis, with the help of Currey Ingram Academy, to service teens on the spectrum in the Nashville Metro area.
