This program, for 6th graders and older, is a perfect first step in gaining job skills. We will set up a job interview and provide basic job training. This is a great resume and volunteer experience builder for students. Pick up an application at the Funhouse front office!
In addition to the Afterschool program, Teen programs, and Education programs, Funhouse Commons has a thriving Mentor program where you can become a mentor for an island youth, apply for a mentor for your child, or be matched with a Skills Mentor for yourself!
