TVCC Northwest Center employees tour other sites

northwest center trip

Staff members Merrie Brinck, Kari Watts, and Javier Pacheco, along with the TVCC Education Team at SRCI, recently had the opportunity to visit correctional institutions on the other side of the state.

Their trip included visits to South Fork Forest Camp (SFFC), Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF), Oregon State Correctional Institution (OSCI), and Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP). According to the team, there are many educational opportunities available for adults in custody statewide. Some of these include a cosmetology program and an optometry program at CCCF women’s facility, and an automotive program at OSP.

The TVCC education team was happy with the knowledge gained from these visits and motivated to continue to offer as many educational opportunities to the inmate population they serve.
