Young men and women ages 18-24 with barriers to employment seeking a path to employment.

What training will I receive?

Career Path students will gain hands-on experience in manufacturing, participate in professional development classes and earn industry-recognized certifications.

ReSOURCE’s Career Path senior students are on a path of exciting transition. Students have been hard at work in their individual department trainings and coming together in their Personal and Professional Development class. Students have been focusing on job to career skills and what steps to take in between. Right now over the holiday season, students will learn how to fill out a job application, creating resumes that set them apart from other applicants, and will put it all to use in mock interviews.
All ReSOURCE trainees will go through Personal and Professional Development (PPD) training to learn the necessary technical and soft skills needed to be successful in the work place. PPD classes are intended to prepare participants for post-graduation success and focus on 5 key skill development areas: Health and Wellness, Goal Setting and Achievement, Leadership Development, Career Planning, and Financial Literacy. Classes are facilitated by ReSOURCE trainers and guest facilitators, and skills proficiencies are integrated into each participant’s Education/Career Plan, a comprehensive portfolio assessment that includes: Career Exploration and Job Hunting Strategies; Resume Building and Cover Letter Development; Interviewing including Mock Interviews; Job shadowing and Internships. PPD trainers work closely with ReSOURCE’s Employment and Transition Coordinators, whose primary job responsibilities are to help students define and achieve goals in career pathways and educational opportunities. Together with this staff support team, participants refine career plans throughout their enrollment, and are supported for one year after graduation as they enter the job market and/pr post-secondary education.
