Job Readiness Training

Youth enrolled in our Job Readiness Training (JRT) program learn vital skills that help them obtain and keep a job, the key to building long term self-sufficiency. JRT classes are held weekly and are open to youth in any Urban Peak Colorado Springs program.

JRT teaches key interpersonal skills, such as how to communicate with a supervisor and the importance of being on time for work.  Through JRT, youth also have the opportunity to work on resumes, practice interview techniques, receive job counseling and assistance in job placement.
