Benefits to Work/Study Participants

Participant compensation will be at least the current federal minimum wage, but they may be higher depending on the type of work assigned and the skills required. Total compensation depends on many variables including: existing skills, time of acceptance into the program, and the funding level of our contracts.

Without impact to the participant's existing academic work load, participants will be exposed to our work processes and deliverables.

Every effort will be made to ensure participants are exposed to work opportunities consistent with their interest and course of study.

Upon graduation from course of study, we will assist with the placement of participants in the workforce.

In summary, in addition to the monetary benefits (compensation), SLIND will make every effort to mentor participants through their course of study, expose each to related work activities, and upon graduation provide participants with placement assistance into professional positions in the workplace.
