Free youth skills workshops return

Residents ages 16 to 18 are invited to learn skills and techniques that can help them find and keep a job at annual workshops presented by the Community Relations Department.

This year’s workshops are scheduled for 2 to 5:30 p.m., July 30 through Aug. 3 at the Oak Park Public Library, 834 Lake St. Participants learn skills such as resume writing, interviewing, career path development and interpersonal relations.

Guest speakers and representatives from local businesses help participants learn to take charge of their lives by developing critical job seeking and retention skills that can be carried throughout adulthood. These local employers also offer opportunities for individuals who complete the workshop to interview for available positions.

The number of participants is limited. Register online at by July 25 or call 708.358.5407.
