Work-Ready Boot Camp

2-Saturday Summer Session held June 18 and June 25

In April of 2022, the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce started a program called “Work-Ready Boot Camp” to train youth workers ages 14-18 on the soft skills they need to be successful in the workplace.

That first cohort of 10 students graduated in May of 2022, feeling much more prepared to seek and succeed in their first summer jobs.

This class is great for kids who are seeking their first job, kids who have worked before, and kids who already have a job lined up.  These aren’t just work skills, they are life skills.

Students can list “Work-Ready Boot Camp” on their resumes and there will be an opportunity for job-matching of students with Chamber businesses.

The Summer Session of Work-Ready Boot Camp will be an all-day class on two consecutive Saturdays in June. We encourage young people to sign up whether they already have a Summer job or not.

Lunch will be provided during each class day and students will be finished with the class by 5pm.

Seats are expected to fill up fast, but we will add an additional class if demand is high.

This is what the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce is doing to support our members and move the needle on workforce issues that have been holding Cody businesses back. We hope this will help the bright young people of Cody get more engaged in the workplace and become valuable contributors wherever they work.

How to Sign Up

Due to limited space and seating, the class is limited to 12 students per session. Work-Ready Boot Camp is offered at no cost to the students and their families, but you must register in advance.
