Career Connected Learning
Youth Transitions to Employment Summer Work Program
The Wallowa County ESD, in partnership with Oregon DHS Vocational Rehabilitation, offers summer work opportunities to students in our Youth Transition Program. We connect students with local employers to help them find jobs that are aligned with their career interests. Students gain work experience and develop essential job skills over the course of eight weeks. All employment expenses, including wages and insurance, are covered by the ESD through a grant provided by Vocational Rehabilitation.
We are excited to have four students participating in the program. We'd like to thank the following employers for hosting these students:
Enterprise Animal Hospital
Wallowa County Grain Growers
Wallowa County Humane Society
WCESD Technology Department
Our hosts are incredibly important to the success of this program. We appreciate their support, as well as the amount of time and energy they invest in our students!
