PINEDALE – Pinedale High School and Skyline Academy students have an excellent opportunity to learn job-skill training and participate in a paid internship with local businesses this summer.
The Ready for the Workforce Program was developed by the Sublette County Chamber of Commerce, Sublette BOCES, the UW Sublette County Extension Service and the Sublette Economic Resource Council. It is designed to provide career and workforce readiness to students ages 14 to 18.
Prospective participants will be selected from an application and interview process. They will be required to complete four or six education sessions in teamwork, business etiquette, interview skills, customer service, civil rights, conflict resolution and resume development. Upon successful completion of the educational component, students will be paired with local businesses for a 60-hour internship to be finished from June 12 to Aug. 4. The internship experience is flexible so students can attend summer sports and other camp schedules.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be awarded a $500 scholarship. For more details and to apply for Ready for the Workforce Program visit subletteboces.com/forms or wyoming4h.org/4hsublette/?page_id=971.
