“Passport to Careers” Returns in June

The Madison Job Service and Madison Public Library are teaming up to help young people ages 14 to 24 start their career exploration journey through the summer “Passport to Careers” series of in-person training opportunities and virtual events. 

There will be eight in-person sessions held on Thursdays at the Madison Public Library. The first in-person session on Thursday, June 8, at 1 p.m. will focus on Job Readiness and include a Library Resources presentation. Later session topics include coping with stress, budgeting, living on your own, mock interviews, and car care tips for teens. 

Virtual sessions will be offered on Tuesdays throughout the summer at 10:30 a.m. starting Tuesday, June 6. Topics include social media, hot careers, communication, and apprenticeship opportunities. These sessions can be accessed at the Madison Public Library if needed. 

Registration for each of the sessions is not required but encouraged. For each event attended, participants will receive $25.
