About

Help Milwaukee teenagers grow their job searching skills by helping them create, develop, and update their resumes.

Our Job Fair & Resume Writing Workshop at the Milwaukee Public Library - Mitchell Street branch gives teenagers, ages 16-19, the opportunity to meet hiring managers and apply for jobs. Both summer and year-round employers will be available to meet interested teens and staff and volunteers will provide assistance for teens needing help building resumes.

By helping teenagers in Milwaukee learn how to create a resume, you are helping grow and enhance our local workforce and business development. Resume writing is an essential life skill, and without this ability many young adults in our community are left struggling and unable to find professional work. You can make a difference and help local youth get on the right track for success.
