In this month’s edition of our podcast, “Higher Ed News You Can Use from Onondaga Community College” we’re talking about the Right Turn Career-Focused Transition Initiative, more commonly known as the Right Turn Program. It helps students who have been involved in the juvenile justice system by assisting them with self-exploration, career exploration and career planning.
On the podcast you will meet Derrick Zalewski who is Assistant Director for the Right Turn program. We’ll also introduce you to student Chris White. He came to OCC after spending more than a decade in prison, utilized services provided by the Right Turn Program and is now an honor student who will earn his degree next summer.
The Right Turn Program is located in the Community Care Hub on the first floor of the Gordon Student Center in room 134.
