On November 15th,
we had the pleasure of hiring 21 Twin Cities youth at a hiring info session. With the help of our partner Emerge, we have been hard at work training our new hires and getting them introduced to the “360° Program” Professional Development Series.
During the series, we equip teens for the job world outside of the Cookie Cart kitchen by teaching resume and cover letter writing, job search tools and interviewing skills. Plus, each student who attends each session in the series has the opportunity to earn cash for their perfect attendance! As teens begin to transition into the mainstream workforce, this advanced work readiness program gives teens the opportunity to meet in small groups and one-on-one with adult staff to identify areas of potential interest for future jobs.
