Educator Externships

Educator Externships: River Industry Day, July 13, 2022, with Presenting Sponsor Ingram Barge Co.

As educators, you are on the front lines in preparing our youth to be part of our future workforce. This requires innovative thinking to guide students to the career pathway best suited for them. We want to help you gain first-hand knowledge to connect the dots from classroom to careers.

Educator Externships is a new program of the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce. Teachers, counselors and administrators will spend time at local businesses this summer to learn about the high-demand jobs that are right here in Paducah and McCracken County. During the day-long externship, educators will observe and interact with employees and gain hands-on experience that will help them better inform students about the academic opportunities and employability skills needed to be successful in the workplace.

The first Externship on July 13 will showcase careers in the river industry. Participants will learn about Ingram Barge Co. and see trainees in action during Ingram’s New Hire Orientation, learn about certificates and academic programs available at WKCTC’s Marine Way Training Center and more!

The first 10 educators to sign up will receive a $100 stipend to offset the cost of transportation and child care, courtesy of Presenting Sponsor Ingram Barge Co.
