ATLANTA, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Community Credit Union (www.DeltaCommunityCU.com), Georgia's largest credit union with assets exceeding $5 billion, announces the continued growth of its High School Apprentice Program, which provides students in metro Atlanta schools with job training, competitive pay and career opportunities.
Since Delta Community began its program in 2006, the number of participants has grown steadily, reaching 21 this year. Apprentice candidates are identified through select metro Atlanta schools' Work-Based Learning Programs.
In addition to providing valuable training and professional experience to students, the Apprentice Program gives Delta Community an opportunity to connect with Millennials in the communities it serves for a stronger, productive workplace. Each year, many apprentices continue working for the Credit Union after high school graduation.
"Our Apprentice Program provides hands-on training for motivated students and added support to Delta Community's front-line employees, enabling us to provide even better service to our members," said Senior Vice President of Human Resources Suzanne Mitchell. "It's another way we invest in people who live in the communities we serve."
Students currently enrolled in the Apprentice Program must complete the same training new adult employees receive before beginning jobs at Delta Community. Students interested in enrolling in the Apprentice Program in 2017 should contact their school's Work-Based Learning coordinator for more information.
