A Success Story

GenerationGo! is a countywide effort spearheaded by the San Bernardino County Workforce Development Board that provides work-based learning opportunities to high school students so they are ready to enter the workforce with the skills they need. Healthcare jobs in the Inland Empire are expected to grow by about 20 percent in the next five years, with more than 17,900 openings each year due to growth and replacement needs. Matching local business needs with future workforce training, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) piloted a GenerationGo! program with 14 students from San Bernardino’s Cajon High School. The students were introduced to a variety of career opportunities in the medical field, each completing 120 hours of clinical practice. High school seniors from the ARMC pilot program can take a state test to gain medical assistant certificates that make them eligible for entry-level jobs in medical offices and hospitals.
