Ready to Work Overview
Ready to Work (RTW) is a unique multi-tiered job readiness and
career exploration and preparation program open to all Sonoma Valley teens.
RTW consists of work-readiness workshops, work-based learning opportunities, job placement, and coaching services. TSS goes beyond a comprehensive soft skills development program to provide work-based learning and the opportunity to build a portfolio of on-the-job skills and experiences.
Teens begin the RTW process by attending five free Work Readiness workshops
covering a variety of skills. Upon successful completion, teens receive a certificate and are ready to move on to a work-based learning opportunity at one of our two social enterprises (Lovin' Oven
and Operation Bicycle
) or to part or full-time jobs in the community. A Teen Services Job Coach provides follow-along support to both teen and employer for the first 90 days after placement.
Our 2019 summer Work Readiness class with the Boys & Girls Club (graduate photo below) was a grand success. If you are interested in our Fall Workshop, see registration information below.
