The three-month career development and mentoring program helps low-income individuals realize their career potential by delivering high-impact professional development services and providing one-to-one career mentoring by volunteer business professionals in corporate settings. In Career Ventures, trainees identify their professional strengths and viable career options; understand and practice essential workplace skills; map and utilize an expanded employment network; hone interview skills and create a marketable resume; and build public speaking and office computer skills. Mentors also provide individualized guidance and support as trainees set and execute against a career work plan.
Interested individuals can submit an application on the StreetWise Partners website. Interviews will be held at the end of the month for programs starting in mid-September.
