Check out what's going on with Dover-area businesses the week of July 30.

    Eleven employees of Abraxas Youth and Family Services, a subsidiary of Cornell Companies and one state employee recently successfully completed S. Renee’s “There Is More Inside” personal and professional development program.

    Abraxas Youth and Family Services is a community-based juvenile intervention program that serves as an alternative to incarceration or residential placement of youths who have been placed on probation.

    The program, which began in November 2007 and ended June 2008, was eight months, 19-hours long. Employees met once a month with S. Renee who provided motivational presentations, coaching, and interactive exercises. In addition, she provided private coaching sessions for upper management once a month via telephone.
