At Pulaski Grow we are about making a difference in the ability of youth to transition successfully into the work world.  On this GiveBigNRV Giving Day, our goal is to raise $5,000 to support training expenses so that cost is never an impediment for youth in gaining the skills needed to secure a job.  We offer several levels of training:

Basic Job Skills- Youth learn to:
     ~ Introduce themselves correctly  
     ~ Fill out applications
     ~ Create a resume
     ~ Write a cover letter
     ~ Interview with a filmed and graded mock interview
     ~ Research a company before applying.

Advanced Job Skills - Youth learn to:                       
     ~ Pitch a product idea
     ~ Understand what makes a good sales person   
     ~ Market a product
     ~ Give good customer service
     ~ Strive for good communications

In exchange for training, youth give volunteer work hours back to Pulaski Grow on the aquaponics farm.  This in turn gives them valuable work experience to add to their resume, and a reference if they do a good job.
