Force In Training (FIT)
Thank you to the 140+ volunteers who trained 3,500 ProStart students in October!
A first of its kind training for high school students, FIT uses industry leaders to teach job readiness skills such as how to conduct a job search, prepare a resume and be a good leader. In 2018, 140 volunteers arrived at 51 high schools on a single day preparing over 3,500 students for their first jobs.
In this three hour training, students learn how to land a job, be a good employee and be a leader -- Land It, Work It, Lead It.
FIT Certificates are awarded to students who complete the training and pass an exam.
