Greater Spokane Incorporated is partnering with the Mead and Central Valley school districts and the Spokane Area Workforce Development Council to manage an internship program where area employers provide youth a meaningful worksite learning experience that builds academic, technical and workplace skills for high school students.
Internships assist students in making informed decisions about the education they need to be successful in a variety of career paths, including college, technical training, apprenticeships and more.
The program - called 'Work 101' - partners high school students with area businesses, providing an opportunity to gain experience in real-world settings and develop the soft skills needed to meet the demand of the future workforce.
Currently, internships are open to students at Spokane Valley Tech and the Riverpoint Academy. Spokane Valley Tech is a campus made up of students from Central Valley, West Valley, Freeman and East Valley high schools. The Riverpoint Academy is a campus made up of students from Mead and Mt. Spokane high schools.
