Center of Workforce Innovations (CWI) and the Northwest Indiana Workforce Board are delighted to launch their SummerWorks program featuring two free training programs for young adults.
Young adults ages 16-24 will have an opportunity to apply to participate in one of the programs. One program is the TechWorks summer experience, featuring a virtual training platform with some in-person components. Participants will gain an IT Fundamentals Certification and Level One Customer Service Badge. The program includes a paid work experience with a local employer and paying up to $15 per hour. The second program is Ready for Work. Ready for Work takes participants through a personal career assessment based on their interests. Features of Ready for Work include budgeting and financial literacy, learning soft skills that are important to employers, gaining a mind-set on what it takes to succeed in the workforce, and the mindset needed to start a business.
Spots for training are limited and require an application process. For more information about the SummerWorks programs, including eligibility and application process, visit www.gotoworkonenw.com or call 219-462-2940.
