The School-to-Work program trains students in computer-aided drafting (CAD) while providing low-cost, quality CAD services for TVA and other organizations.
Through the School-to-Work program, high school juniors are taught the advanced computer skills needed to become proficient at producing engineering drawings in the classroom. As seniors, students are eligible to work at one of our offices where they earn wages while completing projects for TVA and other organizations.
The School-to-Work program not only expands educational and career opportunities for students, it is a training ground for tomorrow's workforce who will need advanced computer skills to compete in a highly competitive job market. Our business partners receive quality products and services while helping students learn how to function in a job setting. Students gain hands-on experience while working with industry professionals throughout each project. Students also learn the importance of time management in order to meet deadlines and how to meet or exceed expectations when other people are depending on them. Students truly become an intregal part of our team and gain many skills that help them in school and in life.
Since 1995, the School-to-Work program has grown from three students in Knoxville, Tennessee to impacting over 4,500 students at 34 high schools in 12 east Tennessee counties, 3 northern Georgia counties and 1 county in Kentucky. There is on-going interest from other school systems about expanding the program. However, this can only be accomplished with additonal business partners and work locations. Businesses, industries, utilities and other organizations are encouraged to become partners with the School-to-Work program.
