ACHIEVER + is a midday enrichment class for students as they wait to begin their internships. Lessons focus on workplace readiness skills and postsecondary preparation. Students partake in activities that make them think critically, collaborate with others, and begin forming a post-high school plan. Activities include time management, financial literacy, panel discussions, professional speakers, and tours of colleges and businesses.
ACHIEVER + begins September 10th at the Genesys Works Chicago office, Monday through Thursday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
Only students beginning an internship after September 10th will attend ACHIEVER + until their internship start date. Internship start dates varies. However, students will get an advance notice of internship start date.
Please note, being placed after September 10th is not a reflection of performance. Placement delays are to ensure all students have a suitable internship home.
