On October 29th, 2015 the youth in the GLOWE Program went on a job hunting trip. The youth were given the opportunity to walk around Scarborough Town Centre and speak directly to store managers and associates about their hiring process. The youth that went on this trip had never gone job hunting before so this was a very daunting undertaking for most of them. Job hunting gave the youth the opportunity to hand out their resumes and develop the confidence that it takes to articulate their qualifications and experiences in a purposeful way. It can be quite challenging to answer questions about ourselves on the spot so this trip gave the youth essential tools needed in order to develop that skill. Overall, this job hunting trip was successful and the youth who participated in it said they would be comfortable doing this again on their own.
