Career Workshops available this summer for Madison area teens

There will be a series of sessions this summer in Madison aimed at helping teenagers prepare for the world of work and eventually adulthood.  The state Departments of Labor and Education are sponsoring the series of virtual and in-person workshops called “Passport to Adulting”.  Lois Niedert with Madison’s Department of Labor Office, said that the sessions will cover a variety of areas.

Niedert said that with the workforce shortages facing employers currently, the Department of Labor wanted to come up with a way to help prepare the next generation of workers and help them to be good employees.  She said the sessions will be twice a week starting on June 9th.

Niedert said the sessions are open to those ages 14-to-24, and they can sign up for the sessions they want to attend at either the Madison Public Library or the Department of Labor Office.  She said they can also just show up the day of the event, as they are not limited.

All of the sessions will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays June 9th through August 4th.
