A summer of OJT


For seven Maple Lake High School students, summer vacation has been more than just a break from school. It’s been a time to earn on-the-job training.
Katherine Borgert, Josh Chambliss, Elijah Lark, Brandon Latzig, Hailee Malachek, Wesley Roehlke and Brady Tongen have been working at True Friends’ Camp Courage near Maple Lake three days each week.
“The student workers are gaining valuable work-readiness skills to help them be successful, self-sufficient workers in the future,” said Jennifer Carl, a youth employment specialist with Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services, which provided a grant for the program.
