You're Hired: Youth Employment Fair!
We had over 300 students from all our high schools participate in the Youth Employment Fair on May 16th at Edmonds Woodway High School. Employers were so excited and walked away with pages of potential candidates. They were hiring for summer, part time and full time employment, after graduation and apprenticeships. A big THANK YOU and Shoutout to our employers who partnered with us to get our students employed!
Girls Build Event with BnBuilders
Partnering with BnBuilders, Brier Terrace Middle School held the Girls Build Event after school. The goal is introduce skilled and construction pathway, build confidence and have fun working together. BnBuilders provided all the materials, the project and many volunteers from all over their company. The girls met worksite supervisors, project managers, human resources, accounting, carpenter apprentices and more.
This was a hands-on event to try and learn about different trade careers. Juniors and Seniors spent the day chatting with industry professionals, learning about careers in the skilled/trade industries, and apprenticeships.
