The Workforce Alliance in Wichita is offering workshops and job fairs for youth, and also doing internship placement with various employers.

The Youth Employment Project is an opportunity for young adults to find work, especially through the summer. Angie Duntz, communications manager for Workforce Alliance, says the workshops offer basic information on essential skills and how to keep a job.

“Showing up for work on time, the proper dress when you’re at work, how to do a proper hand shake," she says. "We also have a customer service workshop, a workshop on money handling and we also offer a job fair etiquette workshop."

Duntz says youth ages 14 to 21 can participate in the workshops. The next session is May 17 at the Wichita Workforce Center. A youth job fair is scheduled for June 7.
