Youth Programs Expanding at TwispWorks!

Independent Learning Center MosaicStarting in the 2016-2017 school year, TwispWorks will be home to the Independent Learning Center (ILC) of the Methow School District.

The ILC is a program for high school students who have chosen to approach learning through their individual interests and passions using a combination of projects, internships and core coursework and offers a standard Washington State diploma.

TwispWorks is already home to a number of programs supporting young people in our community through educational and vocational programs and support to help them successfully transition to happy, healthy and productive adults. The ILC’s move to the Bunkhouse on the TwispWorks campus provides students a welcoming space on a campus setting and creates greater synergy with The Careers in Construction Academy and The Valley Teen Center.

TwispWorks, in partnership with Liberty Bell High School, delivers the Careers in Construction Academy providing vocational training and mentorship to students considering a profession in the construction trades to help qualify them for local, living wage jobs. The Careers in Construction Academy includes two courses – an Advanced Construction Tech course and a Welding Tech course.

The Valley Teen Center is a volunteer based non-profit organization that provides a safe, constructive place for teens to see their friends, make connections with Methow Valley adults, gain practical skills through activity nights and have fun!
