Join the Teen Center on Tuesdays from March 5 to April 2 to explore your career interests and schedule a one-on-one meeting with LEAP staff and volunteers to practice for your interview.
If hired, you will attend a program orientation in June for one to two hours – date TBD. We may also have other meetings around interview skills and coaching in the spring.
The schedule of the summer work will be decided between you and your employer. A job skills workshop will run every week for 2.5 hours over 6 weeks, which is required as part of your participation and will cover interview skills, resume writing, college, and more!
