ENGAGE, EDUCATE, EMPLOY

Every Evanston Student deserves positive career training and profitable employment after high school. Evanston Work Ethic Program provides comprehensive and real-world experiences to:

  • Engage:  our students are committed to their education, their community, and their future.
  • Educate:  we provide a full scope of career-readiness workshops on critical topics such as resume writing, interpersonal communication, leadership skills, interviewing skills, and financial literacy.
  • Employ:  The Evanston Work Ethic Program matches each student with a career-specific mentor, a paid summer apprenticeship, and a best-fit post-high school education.  These powerful components mean that our students have the drive, knowledge, and skills it takes to launch a successful career.
