The Y.E.T.I. Club's focus is to enhance skills necessary for employment and youth empowerment. This means the program focuses on vocational skills as well as empowerment of youth through enhancing important life skills!
Vocational skills such as: work values and ethics, putting together a resume, filling out an application, using the computer and other technology as a resource for job searching, communicating via email, professional interviewing skills, proper interview attire, preparing a speech/presentation, and more.
As part of the vocational aspect of the Y.E.T.I. Club the youth will also get to go on job exploration tours in the community. These tours will introduce the youth to various types of careers as well as allow them to consider their options for pursuing work in the future. Some of the tours will also consist of going to see secondary education programs such as a tour of vocational schools, technical colleges, community colleges, and universities.
The program will also focus on empowerment of youth through enhancing important life skills. These life skills will include budgeting, keeping files, asking for help, survival cooking, stress management, self-care when you are sick, using public transportation, building self-esteem, and social media responsibility and maturity, to name a few.
The Y.E.T.I. Club also teaches leadership roles that can be used on a résumé or college application, we may add these roles in the future once our students have an uncerstanding of parlimentary procedures.
