How to put young people in jobs they're not ready for

Tuesday, April 16, 1:00 pm eastern

We hire promising staff every year, and then give them leadership opportunities. We flex and shift our staff over the summer, putting teens and college students into jobs they've never done and need them to excel almost immediately. Dr. G will talk about how to set our staff - new and returning - up for success in their new roles, and how to build next year's leadership staff this summer.
