RBCTC Criminal Justice Students "LEAD" the way

Posted January 10th, 2020

Criminal Justice students at River Bend Career and Technical Center in Bradford, VT, work on completing the 10-week “Project LEAD” program, taught by Deputy Sheriff Ken Schaffer, (left) from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.  “LEAD” stands for Law Enforcement Against Drugs. “Project LEAD” is a national curriculum that focuses on good decision making, goal setting, self- confidence, and living a positive lifestyle.   In this particular session, the topic was to compare and understand various brain scans of adolescents, and the possible permanent mental impairments resulting from using alcohol while the brain is still developing.  Criminal Justice student Gavin Slider (lower right, Thetford Academy) takes notes as Ken presents this material.  The River Bend Criminal Justice class is the only high school class offering “LEAD” in Orange County.
