Discovering Your Opportunities
Discovering Your Opportunities, a four week summer employment and life skills program for pregnant or parenting moms ages 15-19, runs from July 4-29, 2016. This program is a great opportunity for youth to achieve high school credits, earn some money, and gain valuable work experiences. Classroom topics include career planning, employer expectations, workplace safety, job search strategies, and some fun activities. With a focus on the work experience placement, participants are matched with a business and will work at that business part-time for the duration of the program.
