College & Career Readiness
Older Club members participate in the College & Career Readiness Program as a requirement to becoming paid Junior Staff Members at the Club. The program consists of classes in College Readiness, Workplace Attitude, Responsibility, Communication, Problem Solving, and Preparing for the Workplace. Preparing for the Workplace covers both standards and responsibilities while working at GSGBC as well as resume building, interview skills, and job search advice.
As Junior Staff Members, job responsibilities include: program support (tutoring; serving as group leaders for academic activities; athletics and recreation coaching and assistance; serving breakfast, lunch, and snack as part of the Healthy Lifestyles Program; facilitation of programs by guiding members to program areas), mentor ship, and janitorial and maintenance duties (cleaning after meals, end of day cleaning).
In 2013, GSGBC became a Summer Employment Site through STL Youth Jobs, a project sponsored by the Incarnate Word Foundation, Deaconess Foundation, MERS Goodwill, Mayor Slay, and others.
