Tammy Hayward, left, Nathan Cousineau, and Lisa Gibbs packed up boxes at the NCDS Transition Centre, which closed its door yesterday. The Workforce Literacy and Essential Skills program here was one of 33 one-year pilot projects launched in Ontario last year, but did not receive renewed funding to carry on for subsequent years. NCDS will continue to offer essential skills training and G.E.D. preparation, tutoring, and testing at its main office, which is located at 304 Scott St.
