Congrats to Orono's newest members of the Junior Cadets Program!

Swearing In of 2023 GTO Junior Cadets

The swearing in of Jacob and Anna Stankevitz as Junior Cadets took place at last night's City Council Meeting.  Jacob and Anna will work with several departments within the city to gain job and communication skills through the Growth Through Opportunity program (GTO).  

This will be the fourth group of young men and women that we have worked with to develop their skills as well as ours.  The junior cadets are in the Orono Transition Program, which is designed to help 18–21-year-olds with disabilities transition from high school to the real world by providing them opportunities where they can gain job and life skills. The Transition Program teamed up with the Orono Police Department and the city of Orono to offer a program called Growth Through Opportunity, or GTO, which is designed for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to gain skills and experience by volunteering with their local police department.

Congratulations to Jacob and Anna, we look forward to working with you this summer!
