Thanks to a partnership between the STTE Foundation, El Paso Water, and the Trust for the Americas, supported by the North American Development Bank and Microsoft, the Skills for Sustainability Program (S4S) seeks 200 eager individuals interested in getting the skills, training, and mentorship needed to launch next-gen careers in the sustainable water industry.
If selected for the S4S Program, you’ll receive six weeks of hands-on training at Western Tech (9451 Diana Dr., El Paso, TX 79924). Classes start January 22, 2024, and will occur Monday through Friday from 6 pm to 10 pm. Fridays will be virtual. You’ll learn professional skills and instruction in mathematics, chemistry, and biology, among other essential topics, for entry-level technical employment in private companies and public utilities like El Paso Water.
Some program graduates will advance to further training and apprenticeships and secure permanent positions at El Paso Water and other regional employers involved in the water industry. All participants will receive career advising and professional development resources through the program.
