How it Works

Power Ties consists of four workshops held at the school site. Volunteers teach seminars using a set curriculum that includes teaching students how fill out a job application, how to write resumes and cover letters, understanding appropriate office behavior, and learning interviewing skills. The program ends with a career day and power lunch where students practice the skills they have learned with a “mock” interview followed by a business luncheon and motivational speaker. Finally, students have the opportunity to go on a job site visit to see a real work environment.
