Three upcoming Workforce Road Show events planned in Southern Dallas will give the area’s disconnected young adults the opportunity for job-search assistance, career counseling, scholarship information.
The programs are intended for young adults ages 18 to 24 who are underemployed, out of school and in need of employable skills, according a release.
“The events are directed toward people who have yet to find their place in the Dallas economy,” said Laurie Bouillion Larrea, president of Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas.
The events will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at these locations:
- Tuesday, Sept. 27, at Youth World, 1121 W. Wheatland Road
- Wednesday, Sept. 28, at Skyline Public Library, 6006 Everglade Road
- Thursday, Sept. 29, at Paul Quinn College, 3837 Simpson Stuart Road
The release said that the Neighbor Up program will be a key element in promoting the events. Neighbor Up helps young adults receive information about job search assistance, career counseling, and information on scholarships. The program was formed to promote economic development in Southern Dallas.
