Workforce Solutions for the Heart of Texas is glad to announce The YES! Summer Teacher Externship project. This project will provide 15 teachers with externship opportunities with employers in targeted in-demand industry sectors that include Manufacturing, Construction, Health Care, and the Professionals & Business Services industries. The goal of the project is to inform teachers on the skill sets required for a given industry so that teachers can then inform, educate, and guide students to industries that match student skill sets. Connecting classroom content to the real world and the workplace will help students understand and develop the academic and technical skills they need to enter the workforce and compete for
jobs that are in demand in the Heart of Texas region.
High School teachers or counselors within the Heart of Texas region who are interested in participating in the YES! Summer
Teacher Externship project is encouraged to complete the online application (specific details are outlined in the application). Deadline for application is Friday, May 18. The externship week is scheduled for June 25-29.
Please forward this email and information to any of your teachers who may be interested. I look forward to seeing the applications!
