The Adult Programs at the West Virginia Schools of Diversion & Transition work both inside and outside the facility walls to provide appropriate academic education classes, career readiness activities, and skilled technical education to provide the tools necessary for individuals to make a successful transition back to the community. 

With goals of reducing recidivism and providing quality education, our staff focuses on helping students earn industry-recognized credentials, participate in U.S. Department of Labor apprenticeships, and partner with community resources (i.e. Jobs & Hope, Workforce WV, WV Council of Churches, etc.) to assist justice impacted individuals in obtaining career employment with local fair chance employers.
