The program is sponsored by Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth and the Texas Workforce Commission. Additional partners include CVS, Texas Wesleyan University, Omni Hotel & Resort, Henry Schein and others.

The Summer Learn and Earn program aims to:

  • Inspire students through the power of work.
  • Introduce students to a world of possibilities in a variety of careers.
