Fifteen participants recently graduated from WorkSource DeKalb Youth Program’s inaugural job readiness and life skills training class on Nov. 2.

The three-week program provided formal curriculum-based job readiness and life skills training to eligible Workforce Innovations and Opportunity Act-funded program participants, who were taught how to obtain and maintain long-term employment. The program serves age 16 – 24.

The program included formal financial literacy training, career exploration, mock interviewing, motivational speaking, dress for success guidance, and employer engagement/interviewing. Upon completion, participants then transition into their approved paid work experience with an employer partner, or in some cases a participant may go directly into an unsubsidized career opportunity.

The next job readiness and life skills training will run from Nov. 26 through Dec. 14.
