Get Ready! Work Readiness Training event volunteer 

Get Ready! is a signature BrookLynk event that welcomes hundreds of motivated youth to a day-long training focused on getting young people the skills needed to successfully land a job and navigate the work environment. We are looking for volunteers to help us welcome and check-in students before training kicks off. 

Location - Hennepin Technical College - 9000 Brooklyn Blvd, Brooklyn Park, MN 55445

Date and Time - Saturday, March 23rd and/or Saturday, April 6th from 7:30 - 10:00 am

Intake Conversations

We conduct intake conversations with students at Get Ready! Work Readiness Training. It happens quite often that what students tell us they are interested in is not the same as what they write on their application.  The intake process will allow us to ask students about their interests and ambitions in an informal and casual setting, which allow us to successfully better match them to internship opportunities.  

Each interviewer will take part in 4-6 interviews with students who will be pursuing a summer internship with BrookLynk. During each interview, the interviewer will:

  - Conduct interviews that will take no more than 10 minutes per student 

  - Collect notes from conversations with each student (notes will be entered into an online form)

Location - Hennepin Technical College - 9000 Brooklyn Blvd, Brooklyn Park, MN 55445

Date and Time - Saturday, March 23rd or Saturday, April 6th from 8:15 - 9:30 am

Mock Interviewer

We are looking for local professionals and community members to conduct mock interviews with youth completing BrookLynk's Get Ready! Work Readiness Training in preparation for summer employment. This is an exciting opportunity for youth and professionals to get connected. BrookLynk mock interviews are a great way for youth to prepare for his or her actual job interview. Mock Interviews will be conducted one-on-one and interviewers will be able to provide feedback and suggestions for youth to improve their skills. Being interviewed by professionals allows for youth to have real experience and vital feedback that they can carry with them to professional interview settings. The mock interview process will take approximately 15 minutes per interview; eight to ten minutes to interview and five minutes to provide feedback.

Location – Brooklyn Park Community Activity Center (Grand Room) – 5600 85th Ave N, Brooklyn Park, MN, 55443

Date and Time – There are various options available; provided below
