Jacques Mitchell, facilitator of the program at Central High School, shared the following about the program.
Central High School was excited to offer rising students the opportunity to receive workforce skills through the continued partnership with the Sylacauga Alliance for Family Enhancement (SAFE) Workforce Ready! (WFR!) Program. This opportunity was available to our upcoming sophomores, juniors and seniors. The “Pay to Learn” model was utilized, which means that students who participated in the program were also paid at a rate of $10 per hour. The program began on Monday, June 6, and ended on Thursday, June 16. The working hours were from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. It was a two-week program offered Monday through Thursday of each week.
Moreover, the Sylacauga Alliance for Family Enhancement (SAFE) Workforce Ready! (WFR!) Program was designed to prepare participants educationally for transition into the workforce. The program provided a variety of learning situations to help participants achieve self-assurance, become self-motivated, make better decisions, deal with stress and emotions, set priorities, and move toward personal goals. The major focus of attention was placed on self-concept, self-esteem, employment skills, and behaviors. Open communication was encouraged; however, negative comments were not tolerated.
Future Millionaires were fostered and equipped with essential knowledge about their desired career pathways. They were enlightened each day by engaging presenters from the Coosa County community in professional careers such as the following: robotics engineering, industrial engineering, computer programming, physics, law, nursing, pharmacy, financial literacy, budgeting, and veterinary medicine. The culmination of this empowering program was reached on June 16, with the completion of the participants’ mock interviews. During the program, students were able to create and refine their resumes with the goal of obtaining an actual career in their desired profession.
SAFE Family Service Center is preparing for round two of the summer virtual session of ACT prep through College Admissions Made Possible (CAMP). Those interested in the program should contact Mr. Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
