On Wednesday, January 9th Arc Broward celebrated the graduation of 16 students from Arc Educates. The event, which took place in the Sunrise Civic Center’s Grand Ballroom, honored students from their Material Handler Program, Entry Level Culinary Arts Certificate Program, and Direct Support Professional Advancement through Training and Education in Human Services (DSPATHS) Program.
Arc students were all smiles as they walked across the stage to accept their diplomas. The heartfelt night was filled with remembrance as previous graduates gave powerful speeches and delivered words of wisdom to the new scholars.
The ceremony also applauded Arc Broward’s own employees who graduated from the DSPATHS program, which provides state-licensed training and experience-based learning for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs).
For more than 60 years Arc Broward has worked hand-in-hand with our community, changing how people with disabilities and other life challenges are embraced and included. This critical work ensures that people with disabilities, not only live, learn, work, and play in their communities, but more importantly, thrive.
