The curriculum supports the development of skills such as communication, customer service, and teamwork. Youth who successfully complete the program will receive placement preference in the Prince George’s County Youth@Work/SYEP.
For youth who are unable to attend the in person Job Readiness Training classes, please call Prince George’s Community College at 301-546-1580 for information regarding the Alternative Attendance Option.
