This year’s Summer Bridge School-To-Work Readiness program prepared 23 students, ages 14-17 years old, to achieve success in today’s job market. Part of their job preparedness included researching and writing a career goal plan. Additionally, students participated in workshops which prepared them to become successful employees and future supervisors and managers.

At the conclusion of the program, each student received a diploma and a $200 stipend for successfully completing program requirements. Students also had the opportunity to interview for jobs with several employees in the community. Local employers included Westminster Shores, Publix and McDonald’s.
