On Wednesday, May 16, the Wilmington Library’s Inspiration Space hosted a career workshop and exploratory session for members of the Wilmington Youth Leadership Commission. Thirteen participants, ages 16-18, had an opportunity to share career goals, take career interest assessments and explore various fields to decide if it was a good fit for them. Aspects explored for each field were required education, work activities, additional skills they would need and salaries from state to state.
The students were also introduced to some resume writing and networking strategies that can immediately prove beneficial. Program Coordinator Darien Gray stated, “We appreciate the wealth of information provided by the libraries” and was eager to schedule the next session with the group which will focus on completing their own resumes. Delaware Libraries Inspiration Space program is definitely taking the next step in the evolving scope of library services. Focusing on the youth, which is the future of our communities is a great place to start!
