Workforce Workshop 2017

The Mustang Youth Services Center partnered with the City of Paducah Parks Services by providing a college & career development workshop for the Student Government at MCHS entitled “Workforce WORTHshop:  Do You Have What It Takes?”  Students participated in this half-day, interactive workshop which provided sessions on resume writing/interviewing skills, filling out job applications, conflict resolution, creating a healthy lifestyle, personality tests and much more.  Presenters included:  Joni Goodman, KeeFORCE;  Jil Harper, Swift & Staley; Stacey Young, Baptist Health Paducah; Melanie Egner, EXL7 Bootcamp; and Deanne Neel, Lourdes Hospital.  Each student who completed the entire workshop received a “Certificate of Completion” to be used when applying for jobs, scholarships, internships and a professional development training experience of which they can include on their resumes.


Nonprofit agencies were also invited to provide information about their organizations, the services they offer to the community and how students can get involved.  Special thanks to Anne Bidwell (Hope Unlimited Family Care Center), Bjarne Hansen (Oscar Cross Boys & Girls Club) and Monique Zuber (United Way – Paducah).  Thanks to ALL of our business partners and presenters for volunteering their time to help our students!
