The Workforce Development Committee has some very exciting news to share! Not only can you help empower the next generation of leaders in our industry, but you can also create your own workforce pipeline. How do you ask? INTERNSHIPS. That's right, High Schools and Colleges across the state have options for paid and unpaid internships to help introduce students to new industries.
HIGH SCHOOL INTERNSHIPS
Cherry Creek Innovation Campus: The CCIC is a stand-alone college and career preparedness facility accessible for high school students in the Cherry Creek Schools. With a curriculum rooted in real-world skills and trade certifications ranging from the computer sciences to aviation to health sciences, this facility will offer students a new kind of bridge to college and viable, successful careers.
CEC Early College (3 campuses): The mission of the Career Education Center Early College is to ensure that 100% of our students make successful life choices by supporting and guiding them in real-world college and career experiences.
Arrupe Jesuit High School: Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) - The CWSP provides four students to fill full-time, entry-level positions during a fee-for-service contractual period that spans approximately ten months. CWSP trains the students, provides transportation, and works with hiring organizations to assign motivated, enthusiastic student workers who can best meet your business needs!
The concepts are simple. They provide the students, and we provide them a learning opportunity of a lifetime!
