The Strathmore Municipal Library is hosting a free event for students.
This event will take place Thursday, March 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. and is aimed towards helping students aged 12 to 18 learn more about skills helpful to them after they get out into the real world.
Rachel Dick Hughes, Director of Library Services at the Strathmore Municipal Library, said, “they’ll teach students the advantages of staying in school and pursuing post-secondary education as well as what it looks like to budget when you leave home for the first time.”
Dick Hughes says they’ll also learn, “resume and interview skills because a lot of these students will rely on summer jobs to get them through.”
Dick Hughes believes this will really help students succeed in their future because, “students don’t necessarily leave home prepared for what real life can be like. We just want them to be ready and to be successful, and we think this program is a great way to get them a head start.”
