Students Learn College, Career Readiness Skills in UW-Led Summer Program

High school students working to solve a puzzle.Students from Sweetwater County learned college and career readiness skills this summer in a program facilitated by the University of Wyoming’s College of Health Sciences Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND).

ACCESS Employment, a WIND program providing pre-employment transition services, provided an educational experience that included four sessions using Zoom videoconferencing technology and an on-campus day at Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC) in Rock Springs.

Students from ages 14-21 learned workplace readiness skills, effective resume building and how to present themselves professionally, along with collaboration techniques and how to plan for and succeed in college.

Janean Forsyth Lefevre, program manager, and Greg Ronco, project coordinator, developed the program and led the educational sessions in conjunction with collaborative partners at WWCC and Kyla Maestas, a developmental disabilities service provider in Rock Springs. WWCC staff, led by Vice President for Student Services Philip Parnell, treated the students to a personalized campus tour and led presentations on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), disability support, wellness services and financial aid.
