OEC's Conservation and Professional Leadership Development
A training session from March 28th to Friday April 1st will be offered at OEC’s host location, the SUNY Educational Opportunity Center in Syracuse. This training is free to attend, and provides valuable professional and technical coaching to any individual seeking employment. It also introduces participants to OEC’s projects and standards, including professional behavior, attire and habits and introduction to the landscaping industry by local businesses.
This development course is being offered with the support of the L&M Center of Salina Street, Syracuse. It is a valuable opportunity for any young job seeker to learn more about:
Building strong resumes
Tools and behavior in landscaping and conservation careers
Hands-on skills through local field trips
By the end of this training, participants will understand better the methods of finding, and keeping, a job. They will also have had the opportunity to reflect and learn about potential careers, their personal development goals, and connect with resources available in their community to achieve their goals.
This week will be aimed at entry-level and less experienced workers (typically ages 18 to 29), although all are welcome. Please contact us with questions and concerns. Opportunities on OEC's crew are limited to ages 15 to 25.
This Conservation and Professional Development course is highly recommended for any interested applicants to the upcoming job opportunities for young adults ages 19 to 25, or 18 and out of school.
OEC's mission to empower youth to be active participants in creating positive change for their communities and the environment aligns nicely with OEI's mission to advance environmental research, education, planning and restoration in Central New York.
SUNY EOC located at 100 New St., Syracuse, is home to OEC's office and classroom. OEC programs would not be possible without their support. Syracuse EOC has pioneered the way in providing Syracuse with innovative academic programs leading to higher education, and vocational training programs leading to gainful employment and economic self-sufficiency.
