About this course
Our teen-focused employment program recruits high achieving, low-income students who compete for jobs supporting our Morristown Neighborhood House programs. During the school year, students work as paid mentors, tutoring elementary school kids enrolled in our after-school programs. With this experience, they are then placed in paid summer internships with local businesses. Teens can also apply for roles as paid camp counselors-in-training, gaining hands-on, paid experience and valuable job readiness skills working in our 9-week Summer Camp. Within the context of their employment, all teens are required to participate in our educational workshops series focused on job preparedness, financial literacy, and character development.
Our course begins with the first step for generating great user experiences: understanding what people do, think, say, and feel. In this module, you’ll learn how to keep an open mind while learning.
