Happening directly after the Chamber breakfast, this workshop is designed to serve as a practical "nuts and bolts" follow-up to the breakfast panel for professionals who are interested in creating win-win internships for youth - short or long-term, paid or unpaid. Please join us if you would like to identify next steps, learn about useful tools, and get direct support in developing internships.
During this workshop, professionals will learn about services available to employers working with youth. They will also be introduced to a number of time saving and quality increasing tools. This includes the easy-to-use MA Work-Based Learning Plan (WBLP), which has been used to design and evaluate thousands of youth internships and jobs across the state. Participants will also get some examples of highly teachable, easy-to-delegate entry-level technical skills that can be included in internship/job descriptions. Furthermore, employers will get a quick introduction to employer resources at www.fhyouth.org as well as other useful online resources.
At the end of the workshop, Shannon will be available to provide assistance with next steps and/or scheduling a (free) youth internship consultation. Please register at the link above.
