Visitors to the first Connected2work event, which took place at Welwyn Garden City Central Library on Wednesday 23 May, had opportunities to talk to advisors from a range of organisations including Job Centres, Work Solutions, and Youth Connections and to get advice on finding work, volunteering, courses, money and benefits and where you can get extra help if you have a disability or autism.
The free workshops on how to boost your confidence, where to look for work, writing a good CV, applying and interviewing skills, were popular.
Opportunities for satisfying paid work or volunteering roles are essential for wellbeing and self-esteem. We are delighted to be able to bring together excellent sources of advice and information to the Connected2work events. These are free for all young people to attend and will be especially helpful for those who need extra support due to a disability.
