The Works program in each county connects young people aged 16-26 with local companies for an 8-10 week internship from approximately June 17-August 9 2019. If you’ve ever thought about hiring interns at your company, this is a great opportunity because NW Works will recruit, screen, and conduct pre-employment training with all interns, as well as providing logistical and program support throughout the internship.
In addition to working with a company, interns will attend a weekly professional development meeting where they will learn about skills like finance, customer service, etc. By giving youth structured instruction and hands on experience, they will gain professional confidence, competence, and income. By hiring youth through our program, businesses will increase their company visibility in the community, improve workforce quality in the county, and possibly find some great new workers!
