Green Bay Area Public Schools Work Experience Program Interest Survey

UW-Green Bay’s Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment and Human Resources is looking to gage the interest of campus concerning expanding the Green Bay Area Public Schools Work Experience Program. This program is designed to provide high school students with volunteer, hands on experience as part of their educational programming. This partnership is not new for UW-Green Bay, as you might have seen these students helping deliver the mail or working in the Phoenix Bookstore. These students work with a Designated Vocational Instructor during their shift to help minimize the oversite for our staff. Please take a moment to complete the Qualtrics Interest Survey. By completing this survey, you are not making a commitment to having these students work in your area. You are simply letting Financial Aid and HR know if your area would benefit from having some extra hands. Please complete this interest survey by Thursday, July 19, 2018.

Financial Aid and HR will compile the information gathered in the interest surveys and share it with GBAPS so we can better plan for the upcoming academic year. We have also organized an informational session about this program for the interested areas on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. in the 1965 Room. We will have representatives from GBAPS Work Experience Program on site to answer any questions you may have about this program and would ask for areas to commit to having a Work Experience student after that presentation.


Work Experience Testimonial – Submitted by Sue Machuca

The Phoenix Bookstore has been a partner with the Green Bay Public School District Work Experience Program for the past 13 years. High School students from the program have helped with custodial duties for one hour a day, three to five times a week during the academic year. GBAPSD Support Staff match capable students with the required tasks. It is a win-win situation as the Work Experience students gain vocational skills such as time clock entry, workplace collaboration and custodial duties, UW-Green Bay students become mentors as they assist with the GBAPSD Work Experience student employees, and the department has a tidy store. Support staff is always present when needed and the students are grateful to have the opportunity. It has been a wonderful experience working with the students and GBAPS support staff.
