Students receive professional development

SAN BENITO — The students of San Benito’s Positive Redirection Center are getting some much-needed advice about the future.

Once a week, students are visited by business owners and city leaders to get information about joining the workforce.

The initiative began after interim principal, Laura Garza took over in December.

Students are required to dress up in business professional attire and speak with the professionals on what to do during an interview.

Visitors give a presentation on their job, expectations and the training required for their position before conducting a mock interview with students.

Garza said she has guests scheduled until April but is currently needing community leaders and business managers to volunteer for May.

If you’d like to speak with the students you can call (956) 361-6275.
