YOUTH OF THE YEAR
Many of the Boys & Girls Clubs chapters are using DreamJobbing as a tool for their Youth of the Year. The DreamJobbing program can be used as a tangible resource and requirement for Youth of the Year applicants as teen members can use the course at their own pace, grow their professional skills, and create local community awareness and involvement.
Various clubs are using the following from DreamJobbing to reinforce the Youth of the Year mission:
Teach professional, personal branding
Showcase 1- min. student video profiles/cover letters at galas & dinners
Teach how to dress for success
Teach how to conduct an informational interview with professionals
Teens learn valuable career advice from local community professionals
Teens discover their career paths using the DreamJobbing toolkit, and speak about this in their Youth of the Year essays and speeches
The club can get the local community involved and spread awareness by having local professionals participate in the program.
The Boys & Girls Club in Venice uses DreamJobbing to promote career readiness and teaches students to network with local professionals to learn about different industries.
In order to engage alumni and local professionals, DreamJobbing created this page to enable mentors to sign-up and connect with BGC students for 15 minute conversations.
DreamJobbing's courses will teach students confidence, the art of networking, and valuable skills that will help them as they connect with real professionals.
