Eckerd Connects Open Enrollment Starts Next Week November 18th – November 27th , 2019 ECKERD CONNECTS offers FREE employment and educational assistance for Young Adults 16-24 years old who are not currently working or in school.
If qualified, they would join a 6-week in-house portion where we provide them with an introduction to the work world which includes: resume writing, cover letter, worker’s rights, job retention skills and on the job behaviors, and followed by a 150-hr paid internship. After the internship, they are then assisted by a Job Coach to be placed in a positive outcome (employment, long term training program, college, military, or apprenticeship).
