Non-profit aims to teach kids practical skills to succeed in workforce
SAN ANTONIO - A local non-profit is helping teach children the skills they need to enter the workforce and become leaders in the community.
Sebastian Sanders, a UTSA student, is the founder The Sanders Hand.
The organization is working to give underprivileged kids a leg up.
"We have greatness inside of us but we might not have the ability or the or the confidence to bring that out of us," Sanders said.
Starting next Wednesday July 11 at the YWCA Olga Madrid Center, the Sanders Hand will be teaching teens practical skills they will need to enter the workforce or apply for college.
The following meetings are scheduled for every Wednesday in July, except for the 4th, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
"We will be teaching out students mic interviews, resumes, professional etiquette, showing you how to eat, a proper handshake," Sanders said.
The Sanders Hand also focuses on teaching leadership and team building skills. They are looking for volunteers who can also help mentor.
People with kids looking to attend should RSVP via email.
