We will continue to offer both in-person & virtual workshops to meet the needs of the community.

Our workshops focus on teaching youth how to align their values, passions, talents, and goals to pursue a career meaningful and fulfilling to them. All workshops are built on the belief that the career journey is more than getting a job: it’s about finding, and being, yourself. During Jobs for Youth workshops, youth learn how to better communicate, network, master the job application process, interview effectively – and much more!

All workshops are based on our proprietary curriculum and use our fun, engaging workbooks. We are cognizant of the need for environmental stewardship and are not printing the workbooks. We ask our community partners and students to download our free
JFY E-Workbooks and use them during the JFY workshops. Our PDF fillable format allows students to save their work and return to the workbook to update as they continue to work on the various exercises.
