Job Readiness Workshop Mini Series

Wednesdays 3:30-4:30pm from May 26-June 9
In person at Addison Central Teens

We are collaborating with Vermont Adult Learning (VAL) to host a mini workshop series focused on how to find a job and what you should know about working. Topics covered will include searching for a job, preparing for interviews, writing a resume, understanding labor laws and your rights as a worker. It is our goal to help teens feel like they have the knowledge and confidence to apply for a job. Vermont Adult Learning is an organization that helps adult learners ages 16 and up acquire the skills to earn their high school diploma, gain workforce skills, manage money, and more!
