Last month, with funding from Impact100 Sonoma, TSS partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley to offer a summer Work Readiness Certification course at The Club in Maxwell Village.
Sixteen teens completed the course mastering the skills needed to enter the job market. They learned about the application and hiring process, money management, and customer service; completed their first resumes; and participated in job interviews with local business professionals.
Congratulations go to RTW graduates: Jake Brown, Cobi Cabrera, Alexis Castillo, Areianna Chabot, Edgar Estrada Cruz, Atticus Earnest, Marc Anthony Hernandez, Dylan Herrick, Lyndsey Lee, Evelyn Martinez, Owen Miller, Karen Moya, Theresa Perez, Juan Pimienta, Areli Rojas, and Marcial Rojas.
The Impact100 grant is also providing support for a second workshop that will take place at La Luz Center in January.
Teen Services is extremely grateful to Impact100 Sonoma, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley – especially Eric Gonzalez, and the volunteer job coaches for this RTW cohort: Barry Ansell, Manny Bazan, Sandy Drew, Chriss Fife, Amy Gill, and Debby Kweller.
