Devon Yates of Newtech Skills Center has taught the Criminal Justice program for the last two years where he says that career technical education is coming to the forefront. “More high schools should look at what we do.” His students are juniors and seniors who end up prepared for work and higher education.
 
Devon has redeveloped this program over the last two years to include 4 Pillars of success:
  • Academic Excellence: offering rigorous college level study that is challenging and the student can earn up to 25 course credits with Spokane Community College.
  • Leadership Development: creating leaders and not followers.
  • Physical Fitness Excellence: Rigorous training develops self-confidence, sportsmanship, leadership and a cohesive class with teamwork.
  • Community Service: his 49 students have put in 2000 hours of service to our community, feeding the homeless, adopting a soldier (raising $2000 and sending a package), raising $500 for a child with leukemia and partnering with Spokane Guild School.
 
Devon says these kids are learning to be selfless and bucking the trend of other Millennials.
 
This class is also a C.O.P.S. Shop, the only one of eleven in town that is and run out of their class. Additionally, this is the only shop in America supported by students. This gives valuable internship experience for the students.
 
The entire Newtech Skills Center has 20 programs. They are centered on half day sessions of 3 periods while the students attend high school the other half day. The center is a consortium of all the schools and sponsored by District 81. The students are proud that they have worked hard and expected to work hard. This gives them a running start for their AA degree.
