WORKREADY IS A PAID OPPORTUNITY!
Participants in WorkReady Summer programs can earn up to $1,000+* while participating in WorkReady. There are two types of programs offered in the summer:
Incentive-based programs are targeted towards young people with little to no previous work experience and are open to 12-24 year-olds. These programs offer opportunities to learn about careers and career pathways, set short-term goals, and provide the opportunity to work on individual or group projects. These programs pay out a total amount up to $1,000+ based on the number of projects and milestones completed during the program.
Wage-based programs are targeted towards young people with previous work or leadership experience and are open to 14-24 year-olds. These programs offer opportunities for career exploration and preparation and engage participants in hourly work-based experiences. Young people earn money hourly in wage-based programs and usually work about 20 hours per week.
*Figure is based on estimated take-home pay. Full completion of program hours is necessary to earn the maximum amount possible.
WORKREADY IS IN-PERSON!
WorkReady experiences are safe, in-person experiences, with most or all programming taking place 5 days/week at a designated worksite.
