As part of our ongoing dedication to developing talent in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and the Front Range, the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce is spearheading and facilitating a variety of internships for students and externships for educators.
The goal of VENTURE is to provide hands-on experience and opportunities for skill development to educators and students.
VENTURE is focused on increasing the number of students completing high-quality career development opportunities and facilitating learning pathways that align with the needs of industry. This includes working with education partners to support students in completing industry recognized credentials, attaining early post-secondary credit, and participating in capstone work-based learning experiences, such as internships and pre-apprenticeships. In addition, VENTURE supports educator professional development by partnering to provide externship experiences for teachers and counselors.
With VENTURE, employers have the opportunity to provide time and resources to help high school students become career and college ready, allowing Wyoming’s growing labor demand to benefit from a qualified workforce.
Businesses are encouraged to sign-up for VENTURE partnership opportunities.
