Building youth's skills at our How 2 Days

26 Nov, 2019

A barista masterclass or a budgeting workshop, these are skills that can help you in life.

Wodonga Council, together with local businesses and youth service providers, are offering a range of workshops to arm today’s youth with important life skills.

Wodonga Council Youth Development Officer Scott Bates said employability skills (communication, team work, problem solving and interpersonal skills) are important to gaining various employment opportunities.

Youth industry professionals suggest that, in Wodonga, there has been a steep decline in employability skills with the integration and use of technology.

This can mean that regardless of school results, many young people are going to struggle to gain employment, and lack the skills necessary to gain employment and live independently.

The specific skills that have been highlighted include navigating the rental market; budgeting and handling of finances (such as bills and tax returns); resume writing; a barista masterclass, a cooking masterclass and nutrition workshop and, managing intimate relationships.

Date: Wednesday, December 4, 2019
Time: 5pm to 8pm
Location: Wodonga TAFE Space

All workshops will be hands on. Stay tuned for more of these How 2 Days in the New Year.
