AIKEN WORKS is an Aiken County collaborative to redefine individual success and provide opportunities to ensure highly-competent future employees.
How does Aiken Work? AIKEN WORKS teams up with local businesses to prepare students for the workforce through authentic hands-on paid experiences. The initiative will allow Aiken County’s students to develop employable skill sets, while building a highly capable future workforce for our community. With 50% of Aiken County’s workers eligible to retire in the next five years, the need to train Aiken’s youth in highly-qualified and skilled trades and professions is essential to our community’s success.
Join the movement that will propel Aiken County forward as a hub of cyber technology, industrial manufacturing, health and energy! For more information, contact Larry Millstead, AIKEN WORKS Lead, at LMillstead@acpsd.net or by telephone at (803) 646-8985.
