  4. Searching for a Job for the First Time at the age of 14+
    Today I had the pleasure of visiting with 20 or so of our young scholars looking for their first job. I'm pleased to say a handful already have a job lined out. We took time during lunch to go through the presentation linked here. I hope it assists you as you begin to contribute to our community and also make a few dollars... Choose wisely.
