Virtual Reality Program
In partnership with Three Six and Zero, a Sarasota-based live-action 360 video production company, Mojo Coffee Bar will design and develop a series of Virtual Reality job skills simulation videos that will reinforce our job skills training and serve as a refresher tool for our students as they work to gain employment.
