What We Do
We serve 150 students daily between the ages of 16 and 24, from low income, at-risk backgrounds.
Our Future: Ted Taylor Ag Vocational Center
We are in the "Public" phase of a Capital Campaign to raise the funds required to operate the Ted Taylor Vocational Ag Center. Architectural and engineering plans are completed; campus infrastructure has been upgraded to accommodate the new structure (electrical, water and sewage); our EIR is completed, and approved; construction is expected to begin in 2017. We are excited to announce we officially broke ground on April 8, 2017. Once completed, the Ted Taylor Vocational Ag Center will offer training in support of Monterey County's largest industry, agriculture. The four wings of the structure will include:
- Automotive and tractor repair
- Metal fabrication and welding, irrigation, and water solutions
- Agricultural value added services, refrigeration, and food safety
- Sustainable ag and construction solutions
Thank you to those that have supported our campaign so far:
