Muriel Wright Youth Education Center
San Jose, CA
County of Santa Clara
New Construction & Renovation – 2006
The spacious new building and remodel provides room for a dozen special programs currently running at the Wright Center. Included are educational spaces and room for resource specialists for minors with special education needs. The rehabilitation center offers academics, housekeeping and handy work on the grounds, and the youth assist in the kitchen and with other chores. The new construction and modernization work included coordination among County agencies–Capital Program Division, Building Operation Division, Probation, and Office of the County Fire Marshal. The result is an attractive campus; the new spaces and colors help create a non-institutional feel within a secure and safe environment.
