Eligible foster youth can skill-up, connect to employers, and earn cash with REV
REV stands for “Raising Employee Value”. For older foster youth, that means we’ve done the work to build relationships with employers across Indiana so you don’t have to. And we have one-day workshops that can change your life.
Foster youth who have been in foster care for at least 1 day since the age of 14 can apply. You must be between the ages of 16-23 at enrollment.
Foster youth: does this sound familiar?
- Have you tried drafting a resume and felt unimpressed?
- Do you find yourself unable to list references on job applications?
- Have you been fired or laid off from past jobs and don’t know why?
- Do you feel unprepared or that it’s not worth applying to better jobs?
There are 2 workshops to REV: Mindset and Launch a Career
There is no cost for foster youth to attend. All you have to do is register for the workshops. We can even help you find transportation. Youth can earn $40 for attending the Mindset workshop and another $100 for attending Launch a Career.
Mindset is a 4-hour course that will show you the value you bring to the world
When you start with REV, you start with Mindset. As the name suggests, it’s about changing your mindset, recognizing your potential, and reminding you what we already know: you are worth it.
Launch a Career is a 9-hour workshop that teaches you practical job skills
After you’ve completed Mindset, you move to Launch a Career. This session is all about the “soft skills” that are hard to learn in school or college. It’s about how to communicate clearly and effectively, write a resume, interview for a job, and more. You’ll learn about job opportunities near where you live, too.
