Ohio State University Extension Clermont County was proud to partner with OhioMeansJobs in the Summer Youth Employment Program. Ninety-two Clermont County youth were employed for nine weeks with 16 employment partners at 28 different work sites.
In addition to their employment tenure, participants attended off-site, bi-weekly training through the LOOK to Ohio Summer Youth Experience facilitated by OSU Extension Clermont County. LOOK (Leadership Opportunities for Organizational Knowledge) is a teen leadership and workforce preparation program developed to meet the demand to prepare teens for leadership today and into the future. Training covered topics such as identification of personality characteristics, career pathway research, resume writing, practicing personal communication skills and dining etiquette, helping ensure youth learned soft skills in addition to job skills.
The youth development program concluded with a half-day of goal setting and presentations followed by an awards ceremony to recognize participants’ success. Congratulations graduates!
