“In the summer of 2020, NorthCountry understood the need to change how we viewed the hiring process and that we wanted our staff to better reflect the diversity within our communities. We opted to create a training program to bring recent high school graduates to NCFCU and provide them training. We knew we could not do this on our own, so we connected with community partners like ReSOURCE and the Winooski High School.
The ReSOURCE team had already developed a training program that they could adapt to meet our needs. With something new, you are going to encounter challenges and the ReSOURCE team adapted well as we were learning through this process. In addition, the ReSOURCE trainers developed a great rapport with the students which set the tone for the program’s success.”
