Northwest Family Services was very excited to start offering in 2012 a Summer Employment Program open to all YTP students in the North Clackamas School District.

The workshops were held at the Sabin Schellenberg Professional Technical Center thanks to a partnership with the North Clackamas School District Youth Transition Program (YTP). The YTP counselors from Clackamas High School, Rex Putnam High School, and Milwaukie High School brought a group of 10 students who were ready to seek employment.

Students were first introduced to the concepts of maintaining a positive attitude, listening skills, personal appearance, and body language which are key in order to get and keep a job. Also the students learned to create or update current resumes, practiced interviewing skills, accurately completed their master application and came to the class dressing the interview outfits.


The Transition Specialists believe the subjects covered helped lead this group of students to success, reason why during the month of April 2013 CareerFit classes will be offered again during the school hours at Rex Putnam High School.

Thanks to North Clackamas School District and the especial education team for allowing this wonderful opportunity to their students. The CareerFit team at NWFS is happy and excited to start the program for the senior students this year!
