For our Chamber businesses: For the past eight years, the Center for Human Services (CHS) Employment Services has been a proud provider of the Summer Work Experience (SWE) program in collaboration with Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation. This program was designed to give early employment experiences to incoming high school juniors and seniors with a documented disability, IEP or 504 Plan. Over the course of six weeks, the students are provided with the opportunity to learn a variety of job skills while working at businesses like yours.  The students will be paid employees of the CHS, your only responsibility is to provide jobs/positions for them to complete. An important part of this program is that the students have a real work experience. Each group of students (in groups no larger than seven) will be accompanied by a CHS job coach who will be in direct oversight of all the participating students while working for you. Please respond back to David or Joyce at 660-885-8166 and let us know what kinds of projects you would like help with this summer, we will be happy to visit with you about the program and add you to the summer schedule.
