SWAG (Students With Alternative Goals) Initiative

Ambridge Area Chamber Business Leaders attended the first meeting to participate in a program called the SWAG initiative. The meeting was  held by gracious host Debi Leopardi and the Ambridge Regional Distribution and Manufacturing Center.  SWAG (Students With Alternative Goals) is a program initiated by Ambridge School District in which students are able to take courses which specifically deal with school-to-work transition. Mrs. Brewer from the Ambridge Area High School indicated students’ classes will be offered in the morning and will focus on communication, problem solving and critical thinking skills as well as the latest technology applications. Students will be able to leave school to either work in an established field or to participate in the mentoring program, which is being offered within the business community of Ambridge.  We wish the inaugural placement of several students great success and applaud the Chamber businesses for their willingness to participate in this initial placement of students.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the Chamber and we will put you in touch with SWAG coordinators.
