At Pulaski Grow we work to make youth job ready. With GiveBigNRV 2018, we want to raise $5,000 through our "Ten4Training" Challenge. Each $10 donation (or more) will be used 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:
  • Fill out applications
  • Create a resume
  • Write a cover letter
  • Introduce yourself correctly
  • Interview with a filmed and graded mock interview
  • Research a company when 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 communication skills





How it works -
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 potental reference.
The produce is sold to the community through
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and
farmers' markets. All funds raised help
support youth training.
