Job Readiness Training Youth
Job Readiness Training for Youth (JRY) is designed to assist Transition Age Youth (TAY) participants, 18 to 24 years old, acquire the skills needed to find and obtain employment. JRY is three weeks in duration. The first week is a job skills workshop; the second and third weeks provide supervised job search activities. During JRY, participants complete a Participant's Employment Plan (PEP) which captures essential information such as education level, job history, skills/aptitudes, and barriers to employment. The JRY workshops focus on teaching TAY leadership, responsibility, self-confidence, dressing appropriately, conflict resolution, punctuality/attendance at work, financial planning and other work readiness skills. It also teaches youth how to use technology and Internet resources to apply for jobs.
