CELEBRATING A SUCCESSFUL 2016
2016 was a year of unprecedented development and growth for ParentJobNet! Thanks to the generous multi-million funding support through DDSF and an anonymous funder we were able to successfully build out new programs and increase operational capacity to make deeper impacts in the lives of public school families we serve.
Last Tuesday ParentJobNet hosted a computer literacy workshop focused on helping attendees use the internet to discover the best job search sites, find resources for writing resumes & cover letters, and learn about the best companies to work for. Would you like to attend a future workshop? Please visit our website at www.ParentJobNet.org regularly to view our upcoming calendar and to learn about our other programs and services.
Thank you to all the participants who took part in our recent entrepreneur workshop, using eBay. Our presenter, Bill Benz, led a very insightful discussion about using eBay effectively to make money that was well received. We look forward to hosting future workshops to help increase learning of entrepreneurial concepts and practices and to facilitate networking opportunities with other like-minded individuals. Keep posted on upcoming workshops by visiting our website at www.ParentJobNet.org.
Adult English Language Learners Take Summer Course
This summer ParentJobNet launched its newest literacy program for Adult English Langauge Learners that is geared for students with limited schooling. Starting in late September, a year-long class will be offered at one of our East Harlem partner public schools. After students complete this course many of them will move on to our ESL courses where they will further develop their language skills. To learn more about our ELL and ESL classes and to sign up, please visit http://bit.ly/pjn_esl.
After a summer supporting ParentJobNet projects and initiatives, interns presented their work and achievements during a recent meeting of the board of directors. Board members were ecstatic at the opportunity to learn firsthand of the many contributions they each made to supporting ParentJobNet's mission. Their energy and enthusiasm will be missed in our offices, but as all internships, they come to an end. Best of luck to each of them as they start or continue college in the fall.
Last night's entrepreneur workshop was a great success. Thank you to Paul Calendrillo and Nicholas Rispoli for leading an insightful discussion about the business side of art.
