    In response to requests by local companies, WorkSource Georgia Mountains will be conducting a FREE employability skills bootcamp for graduating seniors starting in June.  This five day bootcamp will provide motivated graduates an opportunity to fine tune the soft skills employers desire. Upon successful completion, on the fifth day, students will have an opportunity to interview with multiple local employers.

    Ability to participate is not based on WIOA eligibility factors!  It is open to any current or recent graduate who desires full time employment and is highly motivated to start permanent work.                                                           

    Limited spots are available – registration ends May 12th.  A letter of recommendation from a teacher or administrator is required for each student that registers.  Further information regarding participating employers, bootcamp locations and dates, and how to register can be found on our website.  www.gmrc.ga.gov/bootcamps

    We are asking for your help to spread the word to your students and throughout the community.  Please use the attached flyer to refer qualified students - limited spots are available!

    The AECA Career Day for SENIORS will be held “in person” using COVID Guidelines (Temp. check, spacing, and masks) at our Electrical Training Center. Our 100% tuition-free, paid work apprenticeship program is one good option for a STEM CAREER.  They “start” the process of applying to our school and have a real job interview! They are NOT committed to anything that day. Letters (see attached) have gone out to current seniors who indicated an interest in our program over the last couple of years.


     

    Starting on Saturday, March 13th, the Southeast team of The Princeton Review will be hosting a High School Test Fest Week!
