This summer at the BGCDT we started up our On The Job Training program. This program allows us to bring our Teen Center members to local businesses around the community and learn what it would be like to work in their industries. We had opportunity to visit businesses such as Culvers, Inspire Bleu, Wickstrom Automotive, and Bleu Root. The idea for this program was inspired by the Career & Workforce Development program that we run with our Teen Center members. They were able to learn about each individual industry. They learned and gained hands on experience in learn customer service, management, owning a business, and have a better understanding of what it would be like to work at these locations as well as their industries. We enjoyed running this program and hope to continue it throughout the year!
Be sure to check out our visits so far: Bleu Root, Culvers, Wickstrom, and Inspire Bleu.
