A new vocational training opportunity is now underway in Kenty County, providing inclusive, work-based experiences for students with diverse abilities outside the traditional school environment.
The Rider Country Store opened this fall, located at 1 Railroad Avenue in Wyoming. Located in the former train station, the store sits in the middle of the community – across the street from Brown's Tavern and just yards from the popular Tres Sorelle Dolce Ice Cream & Italian Ice.
John S. Charlton School and Roads to Success students serve as employees at the store, gaining real-world experience in a public, retail atmosphere. The students also create items for the store to sell, such as greeting cards and lanyards. The Rider Country Store features many different varieties of Caesar Rodney Rider gear.
The store is a collaboration between the John S. Charlton School, Caesar Rodney Countywide Programs, Roads 2 Success and Caesar Rodney High School. Customers can visit on school days from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. The store is closed when school is not in session. Follow the Rider Country Store on Facebook to keep up with new merchandise and special events.
