Work Force Development / Skilled Trades Initiative

The Defiance Dream Center partners with various organizations and businesses to equip and train students with skilled trades training to put them in a position to succeed in the workplace and their personal life. While learning hands on skills the students are also immersed in learning opportunities that develop character, teach life skills and help them understand who they are, what their passions are and how to see past their present circumstances into a very bright future.

Check out this video to learn more about the impacts being made as a result of this initiative.
