YEZ adding entrepreneurship aspect to program

Sep 13, 2013

Youth Empowerment Zone is scheduled to have its first annual fashion show on September 23. YEZ is a program that focuses on teaching life skills needed to be successful in the business world. The fashion show will help distinguish what is and what is not appropriate for young adults to wear to a job interview. YEZ Director Lorenzo Lawson says that appearance is an important aspect of the interview process.

“We teach that you can’t go to an interview when you’ve got your pants sagging and you are showing all of your tattoos,” Lawson said.
