Elmwood Youth Employment Experience
The Elmwood Youth Employment Experience (EYEE) employability skills training program.
EYEE is an 11-week paid employment & training program designed for youth ages 16-29 to help them gain employment skills and experience. Youth are provided with hands-on experience in resume development, cover letter writing, interview preparation skills, job lead skills, and gaining skills and talents that employers are looking for.
Each EYEE (Pronounced “eye”) session has eight participants and is split into two sections; four weeks of employability and life-skills training, and one-on-one employment. Participants are paid honorarium to attend all 4 weeks.
The 4-weeks of in-class training are followed by a job search in an area that matches the participant’s interests and skill set.
If you are a business interested in hosting an EYEE participant please call (204) 982-1720 for more information.
