Summer Program 2018

Summer Program 2018 has wrapped up at our amazing location this year. Walmart Supercenter has been a wonderful partner with The Vocation Station to provide opportunities to build skills for all the students that participated.

 Walmart helped The Vocation Station match students with departments that paired well with their skillset and interests. Walmart’s associates were very helpful mentoring the students on the ins and outs of retail. We are so pleased with this partnership, Walmart provided the students with excellent opportunities to build experience and knowledge. 

The Students had so much fun learning different departments and interacting with all their coworkers. They are very excited to move forward to the next step in their journey to gaining meaningful competitive employment.
