Ohahase students recently had the opportunity to partner with Career Edge to participate in their Youth Job Connection program. This program is meant for young people between the ages of 15 and 29 who face multiple barriers to employment and are employable. This program provides access to employability and employment skills development, along with education/training and work experiences. The goal is to achieve long-term employment, meaningful careers, and success in your future working lives. The students had the opportunity to go on paid work placements with various local employers and gain valuable skills to build their confidence levels and enhance their resumes. Recently, Career Edge came to Ohahase to help the students celebrate their achievements and learn about what the students took away from this valuable experience. Here are some great memories from the fantastic morning celebration. In addition to the skills gained and lessons learned, a few of the students were offered continued employment with their employers. Congratulations to all of the Youth Job Connection participants on a job well done! Thank you so much to the staff at Career Edge for their dedication to and support of our students. Nia:wen.
