Our goal is to prepare students for success beyond the classroom.
Through virtual workshops, Mission: Independence students will gain hands on experience building tailored resumes that highlight the strengths they bring to the table. They will walk away knowing how to take their achievements and communicate them effectively during an interview, and establish their brand in our community.
It’s never too early to build positive financial practices. We walk our students through the steps of creating a budget- emphasizing the importance of aligning spending and saving with income. RUW helps students identify ways to establish credit and avoid building debt.
Registration for Summer 2020 Virtual Workshops is closed. Stay tuned for info on upcoming Fall 2020 Workshops!
