Created for the development of our emerging workforce and intended to nurture a healthy workforce environment, this program is a strategic partnership between employers and educators. It is designed to start 8th grade students thinking about their future in the world of work and how their decisions will affect their work-life later. Through an interactive presentation, students learn from local business leaders the value of high school and post secondary education for their future, the importance of learning soft skills, a sample cost of living budget, and what it will take to live the life they desire. From coordination to training, we will conduct customized operations of the program in your area.
This intensive, two-week workforce development boot camp for teens in early high school, builds confidence and social capital while honing essential work skills that prepare teens for becoming effective workers. It follows the five learning strands of working, learning, connecting, leading, and choosing. Its hard-hitting format has resulted in happy employers, happy parents, and inspired teens.
It’s free to participants. It’s free to inquire. It’s about all of us helping ALL Itasca County residents.
RSP is a program for Itasca County residents, between 18-55 years of age, without dependents in their household. Maybe they are a young adult who was disillusioned with college and moved back home, only to feel frustrated by no direction. Maybe it is someone who just hasn’t yet found where they fit or haven’t had the connections that they need to get to where they want to be.
