Job Skills Courses
Each quarter, Rainbow Academy offers a rotating schedule of Job Skills courses that help Ranchers seek employment, whether its on-ranch jobs in the kitchen, barn or greenhouses or off-ranch employment at area businesses and organizations. Ranchers can choose from classes such as Office Filing, Cleaning Maintenance, Greenhouse Work, Grocery Clerking, Food Service, Animal Care and more. Ranchers can take up to nine different Job Skills courses over multiple quarters.
Our Job Skills courses utilize Project Discovery, a curriculum developed by Education Associates, an industry leader in educational experiences for learners with special needs. This nationally-renowned program is among the most widely-used of its kind in the United States. Project Discovery’s curriculum has been validated by the U.S. Department of Education and endorsed by the American School Counselors Association. Project Discovery features dynamic, hands-on learning modules that include competency requirements, assessments, activity worksheets, and DVDs with computer activities. Our professional educators utilize smartboards, video segments and other methods to provide the Ranchers with a flexible, interactive and engaging experience.
Worden Taber Center
The Job Skills courses are taught in the Worden Taber Center, Rainbow Acres’ newly-renovated educational facility. Our educators use Project Discovery’s modules to provide hands-on vocational training and program-completion certification for many types of service-oriented jobs. Also, courses are available to prepare Ranchers for employment in the kitchen, barn and greenhouse.
