Work-Ready Boot Camp
Wednesdays at 6PM | April 12th - May 17th, 2023.
In 2022, the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce started “Work-Ready Boot Camp” to train youth workers ages 14-18 on the soft skills they need to be successful in the workplace.
The 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.
This is what the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce is doing to support our members and address workforce issues that have been holding businesses back. We hope this will help the young people of Cody get more engaged in the workplace and become valuable contributors wherever they work.
