The Duluth Workforce Center with a program called the Zone

What did your general duties involve?

My duties involved creating and teaching job-related workshops for youth ages 14 to 24 with disabilities in the Duluth area. I also planned meetings, did marketing, and worked one on one with youth to help with job-search related topics.

My most memorable experience was teaching to a group of students a leadership workshop which I created. I felt like those students left the workshop with principles they could take with them through life and it felt great!

It has in that it has shown me that I really enjoy working with the youth population and am now thinking about getting a master's degree in social work!
