If I were a young person starting out in the working world I would look for someone that I could be mentored by.
If you are new to the work world and not quiet sure what to do then ask questions now so you can get off to a better start or job.
Sharon, Welcome to the Community and Happy New Year.
I would be very happy to help you start a community action program.
The best first step is to develop a Business Plan.
The Business Plan is like a road map to success.
Best of luck and stay in touch.
How can we begin ? I would like to make this happen very soon
Why don't you begin with an appointment with one of the high schools in your area? Contact them and ask to spend some time with one of the guidance counselors or one of the high school employees who works with the older teens.
During your meeting, explain what you have in mind and ask if there is a way to work with the school on some community action projects - maybe even suggest a few you have in mind. If you have an opportunity to talk to some of the students you might begin to get an idea of what opportunities they would be most interested in working on.
If there is a Boys or Girls Club in your area, that would be another avenue to pursue.
Good luck in your endeavors. Be sure to get back with us and let us know how you are doing.
There are many professions I could train someone to perfect. I began my working life at the age of 14 in my high school. As a younger adult I then went to a community action program and began training as a switchboard operator then clerical aide. There skills and professions are very helpful in my life today and how I began them is vital to any person wanting to get out in the working world today. I would like to concentrate on the high school students, where the questions and dreams have been stirred.
