Hundreds of Genesee County teenagers just completed a program that may help them land a summer job.
Teen Quest gives 14 to 19 year olds a chance to learn a variety of skills, from how to apply for a job to how to behave in the workplace.
Rhetta Hunyady is the Vice President of Education and Training for the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce. She says it’s very important for young people to learn workplace skills.
“Teens who generally don’t have any work experience, while they’re a teen, really don’t fare well later in life,” says Hunyady.
