Local Teens Train for First Job

June 15, 2005--Posted at 4:00 pm CDT

 

Jonesboro, AR--Before letting your child head off to work you may want to send them to training first.  For most kids now is about the time they begin looking for the perfect summer job, and those jobs are looking for the perfect little worker.  Many times the job and the young employee may not mix, but local programs like St Bernards Medical Centers ‘Safe Sitter’ program tries to help young ones prepare to put on the blue collar.

 

“We are all about helping teach responsibility.” Safe Sitter coordinator Emily Heerns said.  Here they are taught basic things like handling customers, first aid, and emergency management.

 

The safe sitter course is not the only place in the area which gives teen training.  ‘Workforce Jonesboro’ also helps prepare teens for the working world.

 

If you would like to enroll your teen in the Safe Sitter class you can contact the St Bernards Healthline at 931-5055.  You can also contact Workforce Jonesboro for details about programs in which they offer to get your child ready to work.
