This grant will support the development and implementation of a workforce skills readiness curriculum that is focused on best practices in the field. ScriptEd wants to improve its paid summer internship program, which trains students from under-resourced schools in coding and web development, and then gives them access to technology careers. Interns have the necessary technical skills, but lack the basic professional and business skills required for placement at job sites. ScriptEd will hire a consultant to develop a curriculum based on best practices to train the interns in the skills and attitudes required to be a success in the workplace. The consultant will also train ScriptEd’s staff to implement the curriculum in the future.
