The Ready for the Workforce program is facilitated by the Sublette Chamber of Commerce, Sublette BOCES, and University of Wyoming Extension. The intent of this program is to give high school students the opportunity to learn important job and life skills as well as to connect with someone in the community who is in a workforce pathway or career they may be interested in. As part of this program students are required to attend five of the following six educational sessions: financial basics, personalities in the workplace, customer service, civil rights and conflict resolution, resume success and interview skills/business etiquette. These classes will be held during lunch and guided reading periods at Pinedale High School on April 24, 26 and May 1, 3, 8 and 10, 2018. During these sessions students will be provided a catered lunch to eat while you learn.
Once the educational sessions have been completed, students will work with a internship provider to schedule 60 hours of on the job work to complete the internship anytime between June 11 between August 10, 2018. Please note, it is the student’s responsibility to work with their employer to work out times that work best for all parties. When that is established, please stick with it. At the completion of the internship (verified by the internship provider), the student will receive a $500 scholarship and certificate of completion.
