A huge thank you to the 15 SHRM-Atlanta volunteers who came out to WorkSource Atlanta on Saturday, May 6th, to facilitate job readiness classes and conduct mock interviews with youth residing within the city of Atlanta for WorkSource Atlanta's Summer Training and Youth Employment STEP Forward Program.
WorkSource Atlanta, the city of Atlanta’s workforce development agency, partners with local businesses to provide Atlanta youth between the ages of 14 and 24 with summer internships and career exploration workshops to assist in post-graduation planning.
The workshops created and delivered by SHRM Atlanta volunteers are instrumental in preparing the youth for their summer internships and equipping them with essential life skills. The classes that we facilitated were: How to Prepare a Resume, How to Ace the Interview and How to Keep A Job. The feedback from WorkSource Atlanta and the volunteers has been very positive.
