Workership Program

Grigg Lewis Workership Program

The Grigg Lewis Workership program was created in 2003 after board member, Christa Caldwell, was inspired by a similar program in Northern New York.  Every year the Foundation provides Eastern Niagara County college students and nonprofits an opportunity to partner together in a mutually beneficial relationship.  Students are able to earn a fair wage, potential college credits, and are mentored by some of the most professional agencies in our field. Students often gain a practical outlook on the workplace environment. The Eastern Niagara County nonprofits are able to hire these additional paid staff members to assist in their summer programming and in turn, further their mission.

 

With a wide variety of positions available, students have the opportunity to work in fields such as history and tourism, sports and recreation, mental health, arts and culture, and youth programming, while gaining nonprofit experience and valuable insight into their chosen career fields.
