Each year, we bring thousands of training opportunities to youth in schools and community programs throughout San Diego County. Booking a training opportunity can be a great way to start your partnership with C2C:
A great résumé is the key to landing job interviews. Participants will learn what it takes to build résumés employers will love. They will learn how to share about previous jobs, volunteer positions and other experience, then create a résumé using our mobile résumé lab.
Elevator pitches are brief, rehearsed introductions that give potential employers a “highlight reel” of a person’s experiences and aspirations — answering the common “tell me about yourself” interview question. Participants will build a pitch that includes their passions, goals and qualifications, then practice their pitch individually and in groups.
A strong interview can mean the difference between “you’re hired” and “don’t call us; we’ll call you.” At this workshop, participants will learn strategies for interview success and engage in practice interviews with their peers.
San Diego’s economy offers many engaging, fulfilling work opportunities many young people may not even know exist. During this workshop, we’ll share about San Diego’s fastest-growing industries and occupations and help participants learn what they can do now to qualify for those job opportunities in the future.
The CONNECT2Careers portal gives youth access to job postings, a peer job coach and resources like résumé templates and practice interview questions. We’ll bring our mobile application lab (serves up to 10 participants at a time) to accept online registrations and answer questions youth may have as they register for the portal.

On April 13, 2017, over 500+ stakeholders met at Flip the Script to better understand the story of San Diego’s opportunity youth and outline an action plan to ‘cut the rate’ and ’halve the gap’ by 2020. We’re convening a collaborative of youth, families, system leaders, and experts to address the recommendations and work towards reducing youth disconnection from work and school.
