The Southwest Washington Workforce Development Council is seeking companies to participate in Business After School: Health Care Week from May 4 through 6.
Health care, hospitals and long-term care firms and companies with STEM-related jobs in allied health, dentistry, midwifery/obstetrics, medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, behavioral health, nutrition, physical therapy, fitness and other health-related professions are invited to host a two-hour after-school event for students, ages 16-21, at their location. The businesses are to provide tours and hands-on activities. They also will be expected to discuss jobs in their company and opportunities for job-shadowing, summer employment, apprenticeships, internships and/or mentoring.
Businesses wishing to participate may sponsor the entire four-week Business After School series for $2,500 or an industry week for $250 or $500 to support the nonprofit program.
Sponsorship applications are available at http://business-after-school.webs.com or from Chelsea Chunn, SWWDC’s Youth Initiatives Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-567-1066. Applications are due no later than March 25.
