Southeast Regional Council supports Lathrop Education and Training Center renovations with $60,000 grant

The Southeast Regional Council is focused on youth education and economic development. By providing a $60,000 grant to the Lathrop Education and Training Center, the Council supported the facility renovations. The Lathrop Education and Training Camp is a former Department of Youth Corrections camp facility that has been vacant for approximately 12 years. It is being renovated to re-engage students who have left education with technology to achieve their desired goals. Internships provide a pathway to employment, resulting in an economic benefit to the local community.

The site encompasses over 30,000 square feet, containing a gymnasium, an administration building, a conference room, a two-story classroom, dining area, a vocational building, and dormitory facility. The grant was used for the renovation of the initial phase of this site to bring the facilities to code and create an education and training center. This renovation project is two-fold; it addresses the long-term needs of the community (dropouts, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, job skills training, and the lack of skilled workers). It also provides the Huerfano County Workforce Center with a team of youth to work on this renovation project for hands-on training.
