2019 SAHRA/MOSHRM Day of Service Partners with Youth Development Program

 

Missouri’s state SHRM association began an HR Day of Service initiative around the state in 2017 to engage and encourage SHRM chapters and those in the HR profession to reach out to their local communities and share their specific HR skill sets in an effort to better equip individuals for the workplace.

The initiative was expanded in 2018 with more engagement and involvement around the state from local SHRM chapters. 

The 2019 SAHRA/MOSHRM Day of Service is slated for May 3 and will coordinate with the Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) initiative. JAG is a nonprofit youth development program dedicated to helping at-risk youth graduate from high school and make successful transitions to postsecondary education or meaningful employment.

 

JAG’s mission is to keep young people in school through graduation and provide work-based learning experiences that will lead to career advancement opportunities or to enrollment in postsecondary education. This is accomplished by establishing and supporting state organizations and local school districts committed to implementing the JAG Model for both in school and out-of-school youth. JAG Model programs deliver a set of services to targeted youth in high school, including twelve months of post-graduation follow-up services.

 

Randy Tucker, HR manager at Dairy Farmers of America, Inc. says SAHRA/MOSHRM volunteers will provide JAG students who are close to graduation and will soon be looking for employment with the following:

 

1.      A business panel comprised of local HR reps will describe their respective businesses and what it is they look for in a potential employee.

2.      The students will write and submit résumés in advance and the HR reps will provide feedback and tips. They will also share interview dos and don’ts with the students.

3.      HR reps will conduct mock interviews with the students and provide some constructive criticism in order to further prepare students for the interview and hiring process.

 

SAHRA members will branch out from Springfield for this year’s Day of Service by coordinating and providing HR services to the students in the JAG program at Bolivar High School.
