Education Update – April 2017
Internship opportunities for business
Are you interested in preparing our workforce of tomorrow? Consider providing an internship or apprenticeship opportunity in which your business works with one or more talented high school juniors or seniors who are participating in the Work-Based Learning program through Fayette County Public Schools.
Hundreds of local businesses or organizations currently provide job opportunities to students with a wide range of career interests ranging from engineering,  business & entrepreneurship, healthcare, IT, human resources, marketing and PR, automotive, manufacturing, skilled trade jobs, accounting and many more! We are currently selecting students who will work with interested businesses for the upcoming school year.

If you’d like to sign up for the program or would like more information, please contact Virginia Gibbs, Work-Based Learning and Youth Apprenticeship Coordinator via e-mail at or 770-716-1209 ext 231. You can learn more by viewing a 3 minute video where students and business leaders talk about their experience with the program on the Work-Based Learning website.

The work-based learning program has been a win-win for the Chamber and our intern, Alexa. She has gained job skills and work experience. The Chamber gained her fresh perspective that has helped us accomplish projects we would not have done without her!”  – Paige Muh, Fayette Chamber of Commerce
The next meeting will be held Tuesday, April 18 from 4:00 -5:30 p.m. at the Fayette Chamber of Commerce.
