Teen job skills program to host informational meetings

CASCADE — The Fort Ritchie Community Center will host two informational meetings for teens and parents to learn more about its job skills program.

The meetings will run from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday and Wednesday at the Community Center at 14421 Lake Royer Drive in Cascade.

The program serves youths between ages 12 and 17 to develop “soft” skills that local employers desire from their employees, such as interaction and communication. It is offered through a partnership with the Rural Maryland Council.

Weekly instructional sessions are held at the Community Center and feature a wide range of topics, including careers, financial responsibility, networking, goal setting and communication. The program is free and provides stipends for participants who attend instructional sessions and complete work sessions each week at the Community Center.

Participants currently enrolled in the program will be available, along with staff, to share their experiences and thoughts on the program at the informational meetings.
