The Barren River Local Workforce Investment Board is working with local employers to provide training opportunities for eligible youth customers who are currently high school seniors. These youth must currently be enrolled in “technical classes” such as welding, automotive, healthcare, etc. which have been determined as high growth sectors within our region. The internship is designed as a short-term or part-time work assignment with a private for-profit, non-profit, or public employer designed to enhance skills learned in a classroom setting and provide the opportunity for the application of these learned skills. A successful internship will better prepare the participant for employment in the related occupation or industry of interest. Generally, participation in an internship should not exceed 250 hours, with the specific duration based upon the needs of the participant. The internship activity is typically designed for individuals who already possess basic work maturity skills, though this may not be the case for all internship participants.
