Youth and families must participate in the CreatiVision and The Playground Programs and reach benchmarks in each program before they can begin the Path Career Development Program.
The Path Career Development Program is available once the employable age youth and families living in the grater Springfield, Ohio area have achieved short term and medium term goals. This Path Career Mentoring Program is the wrap around approach for youth and family development and is an incentive for reducing, preventing, or eliminating at-risk behavior.
Through a series of assessments, we help you understand who you are, where you are going and how you will get there. Jobseekers Network will provide a 10 session course for youth and families through coaching and mentoring. The course outline begins with an evidence based personality and aptitude assessment to determine the career fields youth and adults will be most successful.
Jobseekers Network’s Path Career Development program will consist of financial courses, search for a career online, how to fill out an application, how to write a resume, how to apply online/in-person, how to interview, and how to follow-up, how to accept an offer, and how to maintain employment.
Youth participating in this program will be given resources for education, what courses to take including CTC CPP, Honors, attending college, trade, school, or military or a plan to obtain employment after graduation
Youth participating in this program and have successfully completed each session, Jobseekers Network will reach out to local employers and set up job shadowing and or paid/unpaid internships. If those options are not available Jobseekers Network will find a career mentor in the field where the youth are designed to work.
Jobseekers Network will provide adult family members full cycle recruitment resources to obtain a career once they have successfully completed the Path Career Development sessions.
The goal of Jobseekers Network shall be to educate youth on a career search and provide them with opportunities to see the work environment, while still in High School, before they invest in it.
