A proposed signature project of the Las Vegas Spring Mountains Rotary Club (LVSMR), JOB1 will coach youth, generally ages sixteen to twenty-four, in the information and implementation steps needed to seek and find first time employment. The target population is young adults considered at risk, homeless, underserved, or low income. This project will be implemented in partnership with nonprofit organizations.
Participants will discover where to look for job opportunities, create effective entry-level resumes, become comfortable with the job application and interview processes, understand how to dress for success, and understand the nature of job ready customer service skills.
Based on follow up survey (either mailed or SurveyMonkey), 50% of participants will report success in finding employment within six months of active job seeking.
