HOW IT WORKS:

Youth make an appointment with the Career Connection Center (337 W. Pike Street Lawrenceville, GA 30046) to receive a one-hour coaching session with a professional from within our community. During the one hour appointment each youth will receive:

  • A professional outfit: shirt, pants/skirt, socks, shoes
  • Resume review & assistance
  • A mock-interview session for interview practice
  • Career counseling & advice

After booking the appointment, you will be contacted by a Connections Homes representative to get your clothing sizes. Please note: If you do not respond to the appointment confirmation email within 48 hours, your appointment will be canceled.

Who is eligible? Current Foster Care Youth (16 – 21), Former Foster Care or Homeless Youth (18 – 24).
