What is your strategy for getting a foot in the door with employers? How do you identify the right employers with whom to connect? This interactive webinar will help YouthBuild programs better understand how to engage employers as effective partners, not just as the option to help program participants find jobs.

Description

The webinar will cover strategies and approaches including staffing structures, engagement levels, and many other successful practices used by different programs. Attendees will hear from peers in the field on effective practices that they have used to strengthen their relationship with employers.
