Job Training Discussion With Vermont Students

Sen. Bernie Sanders met with roughly 300 Vermont high school students April 23 to discuss job training and career opportunities after graduation. Students from Central Vermont Career Center, Randolph Technical Career Center and Spaulding High School participated in the discussion. Sanders, who serves on the Senate education committee, was joined by three Vermont businesses that offer job training such as internships and apprenticeships. Many Vermont companies provide workforce training opportunities for young Vermonters, or offer education benefits from schools around the state. In April’s forum, Benoit Electric of Barre, GW Plastics of Bethel, and Chroma of Bellows Falls discussed training and job opportunities they offer young Vermonters.
