Welcome to the home page for Workforce Development (aka Vocational Service).
 
Mission Statement
 
To empower members of our community to find the work they want and the opportunity for a rewarding, challenging, and financially sustainable career”
 
 
In support of our mission, we’ve been working on the following initiatives:
 
Secondary Education
 
FUHSD Summer Internship Program: We’re working in collaboration with the Fremont Union High School District, Fremont High School, the  Rotary Club of Sunnyvale, the Youth Services Committee (Rotary Club of Cupertino), and local businesses  to deliver a pilot summer internship program in 2019 for a select group of students enrolled in Fremont High School’s Engineering Design Pathways. The internships will provide real-world experience and provide invaluable career-guidance information to the student interns.
 
 
 
 
Teacher Mini-grants (Lynbrook, Cupertino, Homestead and Monta Vista): The purpose of the teacher mini-grant program is to provide funds to teachers in  the high schools shown above, so they can purchase goods or services that will enrich the learning experience of students. Mini-grants serve as funding for projects that would not get $’s through the school system.
 
Post - Secondary Education
 
 
De Anza Workforce Scholarships:  We’re supporting students and Veterans interested in pursuing a Career Technical Education pathway by providing eight, $1500 scholarships that are awarded annually. These scholarships are funded in part through the generosity of the Its Ueneka scholarship fund.

The awardees can be Rotarians or non-Rotarians. The accomplishment can be a major effort or a series of simple, thoughtful acts.
