Trent Livingston to Present Entrepreneurial Workshop at YouthForce's 2nd Annual Teen Employment Conference
Seattle, Washington, Mar 12, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
Trent Livingston, CEO and founder of Geekly Group, LLC, will be leading two workshops on "Starting Your Own Business" at the upcoming YouthForce Teen Employment Conference. Conference participants will have the opportunity to attend four workshops, network, attend a resource fair during lunch and observe a career panel at the end of the day. The conference will be held at the Joel E. Smilow Clubhouse and Teen Center at Rainier Vista on April 6, 2013.
YouthForce knows it's difficult for young people to find meaningful career information and it can be even harder for teens to find jobs. The YouthForce University Conference strives to supply teens ages fifteen to nineteen with resources and tools they can immediately use during their job searches, as well as the opportunity to meet a network of professionals who can offer advice and expertise. Typical backgrounds of YouthForce teens include: low income, youth of color, first generation college bound and first generation Americans who are motivated, inquisitive, friendly and eager to learn.
YouthForce's Teen Employment Conference provides goal-oriented high school aged students with an opportunity to develop a range of basic job skills and aims to: inspire teens to achieve their full academic, personal and professional potential; support teens' current job experiences with additional tools; help participants boost their job readiness and effectively utilize skills to make themselves stand out, and; expose teens to different career professionals and expand their networks.
"We think Trent is an ideal speaker for the Starting Your Own Business workshop", enthused Shawna Boggie, YouthForce Director. "His tenacity and entrepreneurial spirit is contagious and he has always been a hit with our teens."
