Lunch & Learn : How Small Business Owners Can Create Opportunities for Youth

Event type: 
Presentation

Join the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Small Business Majority for a Lunch & Learn about work-based learning and how small​ ​businesses can explore ways to engage with local youth. Learn about workforce training agencies, youth development​ ​organizations, local school districts and the ​programs and ​resources they offer​ to get involved​.

California has one of the highest youth unemployment rates in the country. Meanwhile, small businesses continue to say they can't find qualified workers. Taking simple first steps like speaking at a career fair, conducting mock interviews and offering job shadowing opportunities can help more small businesses create meaningful educational and training opportunities for our state’s youth.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Linked Learning & pilot programs happening in your community
  • Short-term engagement options
  • Pasadena Youth Works program
  • Tips to help determine the best option for your small business
  • Helpful tools and resources
