    New building project at Pellston hiring students at $14 per hour to help build it!

    A unique opportunity in Pellston will have students and young adults from around the region building a facility to house a new career and technical education class at Pellston High School. And the student-builders will be paid for their efforts – $14 per hour for the 8-week project. Northwest Michigan Works! has partnered with the Char-Em Intermediate School District to provide this new opportunity for students and young adults interested in exploring the construction trades career pathway. The summer work program begins June 21, 2021, Monday-Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

    Up to 12 students between the ages of 16 and 20, from any Char-Em ISD district, will spend the 8 weeks learning and applying foundational constructional skills through a pre-apprenticeship program while they construct a new 1,740-square-foot building that will house the PowerSports Technology class launching in fall 2021. Read the full media release about this new project and partnership!
