We are excited to share that 13 Hazel Park High School and Hazel Park Alternative High School juniors recently completed year one of the UAW Chrysler School-to-Work Program, a unique skilled trades training opportunity currently available only to Hazel Park students through a partnership between UAW Chrysler, the Hazel Park Promise Zone, and Hazel Park Schools.
These 13 students will enter their final year of the two-year program in the fall. They will be joined by 20 rising 11th-grade students who were recently selected to enter the program through a competitive application and interview process.
Students who participate in this program receive training in core manufacturing trades, including electrician and millwright work, tool and die, and pipe fitting. They also receive hands-on, experienced-based instruction in communications, public speaking, problem-solving, and other key workplace skills.
