Supporting Puget Sound Skills Center

Join us at Modo Yoga Seattle this month on Fridays at 7:30pm for karma yoga in support of the Puget Sound Skills Center (PSSC). Throughout October your $5 cash donations will help support their mission to prepare their “students with skills and knowledge for success in college, career, and citizenship.” PSSC serves high school juniors and seniors interested in specialized career and technical learning. Students earn high school and college credits in a hands-on, workplace-oriented environment. PSSC students graduate with certifications and job-ready skills to jumpstart into further college and career training.

PSSC is one of 20 skills centers in Washington state, offering high-quality, tuition-free technical and professional training. Operated by Highline Public Schools, PSSC serves students from 22 partner high schools in Highline, Federal Way, Tukwila and Tahoma school districts with 18 different programs from aerospace manufacturing to animation to fashion design to certified nursing assistant and much more! Students spend half of their school day in their home high schools, and half the day at PSSC.

Our very own Katie Asare is part of the full time teaching faculty at PSSC as a Math & Science Instructor in the V.I.T.A.L. Program (Vocational Instruction through Applied Learning). “I feel so proud to work at Puget Sound Skills Center because I know that when a student graduates from our programs they move on to their future training or career with professional skills on their resume. I have the honor to work with our future translators, chefs, fashion designers, aerospace engineers, dental assistants, laboratory technicians, etc. Thank you for supporting our school!”
