A variety of factors can hinder a young person’s chances at success: income, family situations, a learning or developmental disability, access to opportunities, limited professional connections, and more. Easterseals breaks down these barriers by providing resources and connections for people ages 16-24 striving to transition from school to post-secondary school or employment. We serve:
June 7th, 2017, 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. at Forest Fair Village Mall (former Cincinnati Mills mall) in Fairfield.
In one day, you will be able to apply for dozens of jobs, visit special “Career Zones” that take you behind the scenes at 11 different companies, get an “Extreme Interview Makeover”, and get coaching on how to compete for the best jobs.
NOTE: SkillsCon’17 is especially designed for 18- to 24-year-old young adults who are not in school.
Easterseals works with a number of partners to assist students in Cincinnati Public Schools to complete their studies and to get real-life job experience through internships at local businesses. For more information contact Gary at 513-377-1316.
Easterseals serves young men and women across the Greater Cincinnati area who are at risk of dropping out of school, economically disadvantaged, or facing similar challenges. Our staff assess participants’ skills, identify opportunities for training and professional development, organize job fairs, and more. Eligibility requirements vary; contact Don at 513-386-6852 to find out more.
For young adults ages 16-24 who have dropped out of school, YouthBuild provides the opportunity for them to improve their lives. Participants learn the construction trade by rehabbing low-income properties while also working toward their high school diploma or GED.
Eligible youth gain paid work experience in part-time and full-time jobs in a variety of fields: horticulture, recreation, public safety, art, technology and science.
