2022 Summer Workforce Development

All THAT provides both training and work experience for students.  We ensure that students develop work ethic and soft skills needed to succeed.  Our 2022 summer program will offer an academic portion where students are able to complete courses needed to meet graduation requirements.  
All THAT is now enrolling teens ages 14 - 18 to participate in our Workforce Development Academy between June 13th and August 4th.  Our program is designed to prepare students to enter and succeed in the twenty-first century job market. 

Breakfast and lunch will be provided daily by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department.

Students must attend the entire day Monday through Thursday between 8:30am - 1:00pm or 10:30 am - 3:00pm in order to receive their stipend for the day.  Stipends will begin at $10 per day for 14 - 15 year olds and $15 per day for 16 - 18 year olds and increase progressively over the eight week program.

Students are paid their weekly stipend via direct deposit for active engagement, positive attitudes and consistent attendance.

Workshops for CPR/First Aid, OSHA10 and exploratory field trips into the community that are held on Thursdays may require students to attend between 8:30 and 4:30pm.  An outline will be provided during mandatory orientation.

Both parents and students are required to attend orientation in order for students to participate in our summer program.

We offer six (6) career tracks that expose students to hands-on tasks that inspire them to begin narrowing down their career choices. Teens ages 16 and older, who obtain a valid Drivers Permit prior to June 3rd, will be assigned to our Transitional Living track where they complete in class driver’s education training.  All THAT will only pay for in-car portion when students obtain their certificate of completion.


Our program emphasizes project-based, character-building experiences so that students build self-confidence and reimagine their future. Students tour local businesses and colleges, prepare resumes and participate in mock-interviews with local business leaders. 

The following six career tracks are being offered at this time: 

Hospitality, Culinary Arts - Students explore local restaurants, participate in cooking classes and obtain ServSafe Certifications.
