Road to Success: RTS has helped 100 young adults earn their General Education Diplomas,12 with honors, along with life skills and pre-employment training.  This month workshops included resume writing, mock interviews, career pathway and career assessments. Workshops were also conducted by PNC bank staff on financial literacy and banking and Snead Arneaud, from Girlfriends Connected, provided female mentoring sessions.  On March 3rd we attended the Job Fair at DSC in Palm Coast were three students interviewed on the spot and obtained jobs.   RTS students also received Food Handlers training and received certifications.  We have now reached nine students in our Work Experience portion of the program and was recently awarded an additional $10,000 to fund the student’s internships by Career Source Flagler Volusia.   For more information about the RTS Youth Program contact, Brian Willard, Program Manager @ 386.437.8279.
