Manufacturing Week

October 5-7, 2015

Welcome to Business After School!

Business After School is a program to help young adults learn about and explore high-growth industries and gather information about career opportunities and skills they'll need to obtain jobs.


Many industries will face labor shortfalls in the near future as long-time employees retire and industry growth and needs outpace trained workers.


Bridging this gap is critical and it’s one of the reasons the Southwest Washington 

Work­force Development Council (SWWDC) and our founding partners at the Columbia River Economic Development Council, Cowlitz Economic Development Council, Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, Kelso Longview Chamber of Commerce, Clark College, Lower Columbia College and Washington State University Vancouver created Business After School.

Sponsors are the key to making the nonprofit BAS program successful. Sponsors provide an onsite, two-hour visit for participants. These visits include a company tour, a hands-on activity, discussion regarding the types of jobs available, the education and training required, salary ranges and upcoming job opportunities.

Thank you, Health Care Week Event Hosts!
