For nearly a decade, Glynn County Schools’ Mariner Life Program – previously called REACH (or the Reaching Educational and Career Heights Program) – has broadened the academic horizons of students with special needs by connecting classroom instruction and employability skills with real-world experiences.
With the help of the College of Coastal Georgia (CCGA), students are equipped with the necessary tools to transition from school to a work environment. They are also afforded the opportunity to experience college campus life, participate in various social events with students and enhance their job readiness skills.
On Tuesday, Sept. 19, Superintendent Dr. Scott Spence and President Dr. Michelle Johnston renewed the Glynn County Schools Mariner Life Program and College of Coastal Georgia Partnership by signing the new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
This program is designed for Glynn County students who have completed four years of high school, participated in at least three years of job readiness training, and are between 18 and 21 years old with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities.
