Youth Employment Training Program

Youth Employment / Job Shadowing Opportunities

Help today's kids become tomorrow's community leaders by supporting Positive Steps Youth Services LLC of East Hartford, Connecticut. We are reaching out to between five and 10 employers in greater Hartford to join our youth employment program. All kids receive personalized job training two to three times a week and will gain work experience by working or job shadowing at our partner employers. Job training includes developing resumes, employment application completion and interview skills, job referrals, and placement services. We also plan on bringing in key speakers to help young adults develop educational and occupational goals.

We hope to provide youth with the opportunity to experience fields they are interested for a set number of weeks.

Man Mentoring the Young Adult

Youth Workshops

We provide special workshops for youth centers, elementary, middle and high schools, and other organizations focusing on a number of topics important to youth, including cultural awareness, higher education, safety, and career development. All workshops can be customized to meet your needs and last anywhere from a one day workshop to two to eight weeks. Our workshops may also include prominent speakers, such as community leaders and individuals experienced in the topic being covered. For example, we may bring in attorneys or even judges.

Violence Prevention

One of our most popular workshops is on violence prevention. We help kids steer clear of negative behaviors that can lead to violent situations. We also help them understand and communicate with youth from different cultures in an effort to enchance positive relationships.
