B:E is holding a 2 week Employment Workshop Series Jan. 23-Feb 2 (Tues-Fri), 10am-2pm here at 675 Hegenberger Road. Youth can enroll to gain general job skills and to gain access to our two employment programs—GROW and ELEVATE.
GROW is a culinary training program resulting in employment in the food service industry, and ELEVATE is a program connecting youth directly with employers in the food industry
Both programs support you for 6 months on your journey to independence and opportunity. Workshop topics include relationships, communication, interview practice and resume support, time and money management, and harm reduction.
Youth can earn a stipend of up to $200 for attendance and participation in the workshops—enroll directly here! Spots are limited! Reserve a slot today.
