School to Work Program
stw
Welcome to the School to Work Webpage. We are glad you are here and hope you have heard  the buzz about the great partnership the school is building with the community of Cascade. We are finding that the business community enjoys the opportunity to “try out” a student through our 12 week mentorship program without any liability insurance issues and can determine if the student is the “right fit” for their organization with as little as 4 hrs. a week.

Our students are excited to be out in “the real world” learning about their strengths and weakness on the job, meeting new people, without a long-term commitment. Students are learning about careers that they didn’t even know existed before the workplace experience, they are learning to complete applications, write resumes, cover letters highlighting their strengths from the comments on their performance evaluations and practicing with interviewing techniques. We share with our students it is important to know both what they do and don’t like in a career before they invest in a college education. However, some students are finding it may not even be lucrative to attend college after high school with the local Cascade businesses offering great pay and benefits without any student loan debt.
