After-school or summer jobs offer teens valuable life experience. They boost time management and communication skills, financial responsibility, and can even spark career discovery.
If your son or daughter is scouting for year-round or seasonal employment or volunteer opportunities, be sure to include the library's Just for Teens: Community Job Fair on the calendar.
Scheduled April 21 from 2-5pm at Old Worthington Library, the event will bring Graeter's, Marcus Crosswoods Cinema, Worthington Parks & Recreation, Cat Welfare Association and other businesses and community groups together for a one-stop shop!
Volunteering can also be a valuable learning experience for teens. In addition to promoting self-confidence and a sense of community, it looks great on college and job applications. Teens who want to volunteer at the Library must attend a Volunteen orientation next month.
