Force In Training (FIT)

October 22, 2019

We Help Students Land Their 1st Job!

A first of its kind training for high school students, FIT uses industry leaders to teach job readiness skills such as how to conduct a job search, prepare a resume and be a good leader.

Last year, 140 volunteers arrived at 50 high schools on a single day preparing over 3,500 students for their first jobs.

In this three hour training, students learn how to land a job, be a good employee and be a leader — Land It, Work It, Lead It.

FIT Certificates are awarded to students who complete the training and pass an exam.
