Summer Training


The NDCR Summer Training Institute is an intensive two-week program planned and facilitated by CWSP staff, corporate partners, and volunteers to create and implement a curriculum that prepares all students for success at their corporate jobs.

Through our Summer Training Institute, NDCR students engage in training in three key areas:

Personal development

Business etiquette

Entry-level office skills

New students participate in a variety of courses with topics including Business Etiquette, Public Speaking, Positive Attitude, Filing, and Dealing with Downtime. All new students take a final exam to determine their strengths and weaknesses.

The Institute concludes with a day trip to Camp Maude Eaton in Andover, MA, where students participate in a "Keys to Success" program that helps them learn team building and other work-related skills during a challenge and ropes course.
