CareerLaunch helps young people build job-search skills.

Boys & Girls Clubs CareerLaunch™ is a career exploration and mentoring program for teens ages 13–18. Each young person works one-on-one or in small groups where Club staff help them build job-search skills, including resume writing and being job ready. Through this program they gain the confidence they need to put themselves out in the job market and pursue work opportunities.

This program utilizes a packet filled with a broad range of career planning and job skills activities that Club staff or volunteers use in working with the teens. They receive tips on interviewing and on-the-spot job skills. CareerLaunch™ also has a web site that contains an online interest survey, career exploration, education or training identification, help in finding financial aid and skills-building games.
