    EMPLOYMENT SKILLS WORKSHOP FACILITATOR
     
    Purpose & Objective
    The main purpose of the Employment Skills Workshop is to introduce an array of concepts to YES clients that are fundamental when searching for and securing employment opportunities.
     
    The main objective for the Employment Skills Workshop Facilitator volunteer is to facilitate an engaging workshop for our clients to help expedite their pathways to success.
     

    Description
    The Facilitator would help to introduce essential skills such as how to fill out a job application properly, how to start building a resume, how to present the “tell me about yourself” elevator pitch to an employer, etc. Facilitators actively engage with our clients in this position, assisting them in identifying their skills and strengths. They also aid in guiding them throughout the workshop, answering any questions or concerns.
     
    Currently, these workshops are being held virtually, unless otherwise noted. These workshops are 2 hours in length, held every other Tuesday from 4:00pm-6:00pm.
