Phoenix Youth Earn While They Learn in Summer Health Care Training Program by quotes

Phoenix Youth Earn While They Learn in Summer Health Care Training ProgramToday, students of the Summer Youth Health Care Initiative participated in a graduation ceremony marking the completion of a five-week Summer Youth Work Experience Program (SYWEP), which offered academic and work experience training in the health care field.

The program, hosted by the city’s Community and Economic Development and Human Services departments, reached out to youth to generate interest in pursuing health care careers.

The program promotes health care occupations by providing professional and educational opportunities for youth in a classroom setting and at health care facilities. The youth also were encouraged to pursue higher education to achieve their career goals.

“These students are the future of Phoenix,” said Councilman Greg Stanton, who chairs the City Council Education Subcommittee. “Getting our young people experience in this crucial career field will lead to a better-trained workforce, while boosting the region’s economy.”

Students attended classes at Gateway Community College and at the Goodwill Industries of Central Arizona and worked at Valley hospitals, including St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Maricopa Medical Center, Arizona Heart Institute and John C. Lincoln Hospital.

Funded by SYWEP and the Phoenix Workforce Connection, this program enabled students to earn five college credits by completing coursework for Introduction to Health Care and Medical Terminology for Health Care Workers, in addition to receiving 100 hours of paid work experience.
