Career Development Programs
Boys & Girls Clubs’ unique approach to workforce readiness prepares youth for success in their first jobs and helps them develop a plan to achieve their chosen careers.
Technology is constantly changing, and our youth depend on it. It is critical to ensure access to technology for youth who may not have the opportunity to learn digital literacy and pursue their technology-related interests at home or school. There will be more than 8 million STEM jobs in the U.S. by 2018, but 3 million of them may go unfilled because of a lack of people with needed skills. By introducing youth to new technology skills in Clubs, they may be more likely to pursue a career in a STEM-related field.
CareerLaunch prepares teens for the world of careers and work. Through CareerLaunch, Club teens 13-18 years old embark on a journey to explore possible vocations, make sound educational decisions and find success in the world of work.
Junior Staff is a small-group program that is both practical and user friendly. It assists Club members ages 6 to 12 in exploring a career in youth or human services, particularly Boys & Girls Club work.
