Would you like to get a head start on building the skills necessary to get your first job or enhance your current skill set to advance to the next level?
If you want to enhance your work skills and like the idea of helping others achieve their goals but you’re not sure where to begin then our workshop is for you! Join us for a hands-on learning adventure while we have fun and create meaningful connections. This five day, three hour a day course is designed to help you discover the skills and character employees are looking for. We are partnering with local businesses as they recruit new employees for seasonal positions.
* Note: On Friday, June 16, the workshop will be held at the Colorado Kids Farm in Monument. We will utilize mid-sized animals for object lessons in leadership.
Would you like to partner with us to expand your high school aged recruitment pool for seasonal, part-time or full-time work? Our purpose is to introduce students to the skills and character traits most employers are looking for. If so, we would love to connect with you! Please contact us at thriveld.org.
