Klingberg Family Center educates and provides vocational/pre-vocational training for students in a specialized, clinically-supported learning environment. Funding in this grant will afford approximately 100 at-risk Klingberg residential and day school students each year with expanded and enhanced vocational and pre-vocational opportunities. Klingberg has found that vocational and pre-vocational training, when fully integrated with the education curriculum, engages students who struggle to learn using traditional academic methods. NCA/NCF
