TEENS, Inc. employs five youth employees to work at the Teen Center after school, Monday through Friday. The employed teens participate in job readiness trainings such as interview practice and resume building, learn practical work skills including answering phones and building maintenance, and engage teens in games and activities. They also facilitate multiple teen councils, leading and teaching teens about an activity they’re passionate about. Peer Supervisors are asked to pick two life effectiveness skills to improve upon and develop goals and objectives to track that improvement. By the end of their employment at TEENS, Inc., peer supervisors will have the skills needed to be successful in their future job and academic pursuits.
