Governor's Work Ethic Certificate

OptIN is working with our region's community leaders and largest employers to create the EVSC's version of the Governor's Work Ethic Certificate (GWEC). The Work Ethic Certificate is a college and career readiness opportunity that allows EVSC seniors to identify, develop and demonstrate transferable skills that are in demand by local employers while in high school.

 The GWEC will provide students with a formalized confirmation of their soft skills (responsibility, punctuality, teamwork, etc.) to post-secondary educational institutions and employers. For employers, the program provides them with a pipeline of workers with a proven work ethic, who understand the value and importance of responsibility and perseverance in the workplace. Employers provide incentives to students who receive the Work Ethic Certificate such as a guaranteed job interview and mentoring opportunities.
