North Florida Community Action Agency (NFCAA) Data Buster Program seeks to help low-income teens prepare for the workplace through classroom instructions and practical paid work experience. During the six-week summer program, teens receive instructions on career topics such as conflict resolution, effective communication, team building and resume writing. Participants will receive life skills training on money management, critical thinking, and nutrition. Additionally, teens will be taught Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, which are essential tools in business. Data Buster students also work 10 hours each week at local nonprofit organizations and government agencies, which allows them the opportunity to apply their new knowledge in the workplace and earn wages. For these reasons the Nolan Carroll Foundation is providing scholarships for low-income teens to attend the 2018 Data Buster’s program.
Youths interested in participating in Data Busters should contact their local NFCAA office for an application and eligibility criteria.
