My First Job
In 2015, White Hall Arts Academy has established the "My First Job" teen work program. Through this program teens and young adults aged 14-21 are employed to work as office assistants, teaching assistants and media creators.
White Hall Arts Academy knows that opening the door to a job is life-changing for any young person, especially those facing economic and social challenges. Our goal is to prepare teens and young adults aged 14 - 21 to enter the work force through work experience
We will help them write their resume, practice interviews and learn how to manage the money they will be earning.
Throughout the employment period, program participants work to achieve the following goals:
Acquire critical skills
Interact with customers
Learn professional behaviors
Teens who participate in the program gain valuable work experience, develop job skills and build their self-esteem and confidence.
