Don't Miss the Summer Earn & Learn Employer Information Webinar on Wednesday, Feb. 3
Employers Wanted! Be a hero for your community and join the Summer Earn & Learn (SEAL) program, which provides students with disabilities (14-22), work readiness training & paid work experience.
Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area is hosting a SEAL employer information webinar on Wednesday, Feb. 3, at 1 p.m.
Throughout the SEAL program, students receive work readiness training and connect with local employers where they have the opportunity to do hands-on work for five weeks or more. The students learn about the employer’s industry and develop skills and work experience that will prepare them for successful transitions to postsecondary education and employment. Upon completion of the program, some students are presented with the opportunity to become employed full time.
The SEAL program is a partnership between the TWC, WSRCA and Texas Workforce Solutions-Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
