Work and Learn Center accepting applications for next design and digital literacy youth cohort

Written by Lindsay Tooker

The Association for the Advancement of Mexican Americans (AAMA) is accepting applications for its next Work and Learn Center cohort, which begins September 12.

This paid, six-week training course includes workshops, peer-to-peer learning, and hands-on projects as students learn a variety of skills. The course equips students with training in Microsoft Office and Google Suite, graphic design, web development, and career readiness skills.

Young adults ages 16-24 who are not currently in school or working full time are eligible to apply.

The Work and Learn Center offers a pathway for youth to define and pursue their goals for their education, employment, finances, and personal lives. Through their training program, personalized career counseling, and opportunities to connect with employers, they help students implement their training outside of the classroom and take steps to achieving their individual goals. 

Students who complete the cohort can apply for The Social Enterprise, an advanced graphic design program where students work as junior designers with local businesses and non-profits to support their social media, graphic design, and marketing needs.

For more information about the program, contact Pat Grady at publishes every week.
