YouthForce Innovation Hub helps Athens teens get ready for first job

The initial steps in trying to get a job are important, says Sterling Gardner, an Athens native with a plan in place to help young people understand those principles.

Simple tasks like showing up on time for an interview and completing the job application correctly are important with employers, Gardner said.

Gardner and others recently gathered at Georgia Square mall in Athens for the grand opening of YouthForce Innovation Hub, a new Boys & Girls Club of Athens program that is geared toward helping teenagers gain employment and exploring career paths.
