Future Achievers 101 – Sept 2020

“Making good kids, better adults”

During this workshop series, each of the five key areas listed above are covered. Critical thinking, networking, researching, writing, and public speaking are some of the skills that are stressed and practiced during each workshop. The focus of this workshop is to give students an introduction to the key areas that are important to any youth becoming a successful adult.

The workshop will take place virtually. Students will be asked to watch the workshop video then answer a few questions to test understanding.  Students will need access to the internet, email, and Youtube. A computer is preferable but this content may also be viewed on a smart phone.

Job Readiness: Summer Program – TBD

The goal of the summer program is to equip high school students with the skills necessary to identify, apply for, and secure job opportunities in their community. This is accomplished through a three day training course followed by a non-paid internship at a participating local business. The three day training course focuses on job searching, resume writing, interviewing, and dressing for the workplace. Students will be able to experience every facet of the organization to gain a better understanding of the roles of the various employees. Students will also gain an understanding and appreciation for the education and/or specialized training required to perform that type of work, as well as, the character traits that employers expect in a successful employee.

College Prep: Summer Program – TBD

This summer program seeks to expose students to their educational possibilities beyond high school. Students will get an opportunity to explore primarily, but not limited to, colleges and universities within a 60 mile radius. Areas of focus are: the application process, funding college, programs/majors, and the college experience. Through this program, students will begin to draw parallels between their goals for their future and the opportunities offered at these institutions.
