netWORK-Youth Employment (For Youth 14-24)

We have a couple of exciting opportunities for Youth ages 14+ who are interested in career mentoring and employment readiness
(virtual and in-person opportunities are available).

netWORK Mentoring

  • Overview: Virtual 1:1 Employment & Job Readiness Mentoring program. Youth are 14 years of age or older, and are matched to a mentor for about 4 months (4 months is the recommended minimum time frame, but should the match want to continue past the 4 month mark an option for this extension can be provided). The match meets virtually every week or every other week as set by both the youth and the mentor. The focus of the program is employment and job-readiness, including activities such as resume building, confidence and soft skill development, interview prep, work experience, etc. Our Youth Employment Coordinator is there to provide support and assistance and can help provide resources and opportunities to meet the youth’s goals
