All workshops are from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm and lunch will be served.
  
Peralta Corporate Scholars derived from the Work Force Development and Continuing Education department (WDCE) in partnership with Kaiser Permanente to provide a robust job training program for students looking to build their professional skills. Thirty students will participate in a comprehensive work training program that could lead to 10 students being selected for an 8-week paid internship opportunity at Kaiser Permanente in the Oakland area beginning June 2018. The program begins Friday, June 8th and includes students from all four colleges.
 
BACKGROUND DATA: Felicia Duncan, Program Manager for KP Launch, reached out to WDCE to offer intern positions for students that would provide non-clinical opportunities in the field of health. The goal is to build and sustain a diverse, culturally competent workforce for the future.  Providing students a chance to learn from inspiring administrative health professionals and leaders will support them in building a valuable professional network. Students also gain practical skills and work experiences by focusing on projects that matter.
 
The vision for KP Launch is to positively impact the lives of young adults from backgrounds that are currently underrepresented in healthcare careers, and build a pipeline of diverse talent that will become future leaders in health care. The KP Launch program:
 
·        Introduces underrepresented and low-income student interns to careers in health professions.
 
·        Provides opportunities for interns to develop and foster professional and community leadership skills in a supportive environment.
 
·        Helps interns to obtain practical job skills and experiences that will help them successfully pursue employment in the health professions.
 
·        Encourages interns that face significant barriers in pursuing higher education and career development.
