    TULSA, Okla. - Workforce Tulsa gathered teens in North Tulsa so they could join the group and be trained to find and keep jobs.

     Dozens of families showed up for the event to learn more about the free program. 

     Executive director Shelley Cadamy said they prepare the kids for jobs and coach them through the process, “we help with soft skills, work ethic, showing up on time, showing up everyday, and getting along with people.”

     Jamia Lewis said she has had trouble finding a job on her own, “it was hard, I have been looking for a job since October.”

     Lewis came tonight for information and she ended up joining the Workforce program.

     One parent said she went through a similar program in school where she got help with resumes and how to show up to work on time. Her daughter Roneisgha Littles joined the program. 

     “Its good to know someone will help you through the process because it makes me less nervous,” said Littles.

     Even state representative Kevin Matthews was at the event and said having these kind of opportunities in North Tulsa in great for the kids.

     “I’m excited workforce Tulsa is partnering with us to bring it right here in our community where its need most in my opinion,” said Matthews.
