We are excited to share the news that the Wake Forest Chamber Foundation, in conjunction with community partners and volunteers, has launched the Career Readiness Academy for Wake Forest area high school students.
The Career Readiness Academy is designed to offer specific training and internship opportunities to help rising junior and senior high school students in the Wake Forest area become “Career ready”. Between semester-long internship opportunities and leadership courses, students will learn job skills, leadership skills, and financial literacy.
The Wake Forest Chamber Foundation was one of five recipients in the United States to receive a grant from the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation to fund this year’s program. The national recognition is something we should all be very proud of as residents of Wake Forest!
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is sponsoring this academy to help create work-based learning programs to better connect students with local job opportunities and potential future careers. There will be no cost to the students selected for the program. For more information and student application requirements click here
As a local Wake Forest business, Redwood Productions is a proud supporter of this initiative. We know that it will not only help students prepare for their future but also help provide “Career ready” students for local Wake Forest businesses. It is a truly win-win situation! The Wake Forest Chamber Foundation came to us to for help with branding and we jumped on the chance to get involved. You can check the logo we created on our website Redwoodproductions.com/logo/jjjjkkk
We have so much to be proud of living in Wake Forest. In particular, the great work that both the Wake Forest Chamber and the newly formed Wake Forest Chamber Foundation do to support our Wake Forest community.
