Invite a youth to a free work readiness workshop in July

CONNECT2Careers (C2C) is offering free workshops hosted by MAAC Project in the month of July open to all San Diego County residents ages 16-24. Training specialists will provide young adults with helpful tips and tools to gain employment and introduce them to the soft skills necessary to get and keep a job. Young adults are invited to attend one or more workshops in the series:

  • July 11: Creating an Elevator Pitch
  • July 19: Preparing for Interviews

All workshops take place from 1-2 p.m. at the MAAC Project San Martin De Porres STEP Center located at 9119 Jamacha Rd., Spring Valley, CA 91977
