The JET participants took off to explore local education opportunities after finishing their first week of work. They toured Louisiana Tech University, received a personal tour of Grambling State Univeristy by our very own Ja’Deric, and visited the great Edddie Robison Museum.
JET is a program started by the Bienville Parish Police Jury and LSU AgCenter. Since 2008 the program has gained a strong reputation among the community for its youth enrichment. During the 4-week program, youth 16 to 18 years-old earn income while being employed at various public and private businesses. Not only does the program provide a valuable first employment opportunity, but it also equips teens with practical skills:
- Goal Setting
- Resume Building
- Interview Skills
- On-the-Job Etiquette
- Personal Branding
