We are excited to announce that we are now offering free educational workshops for parents and high school students at our Bellevue Family Hub resource center. The first two workshops are being presented by our partners at Hopelink. Together we will host Job Interviewing Skills on March 28 and 30 and Understanding Financial Credit on April 12 and 13.
At the Job Interviewing Skills workshop, high school students and parents will learn how to answer the number one interview question, “Tell me about yourself?” They will learn the key to answering behavioral interview questions using the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) method and will also have the opportunity to practice answering interview questions in a safe space with professional Employment Coaches.
At the Understanding Financial Credit workshop, parents and students will learn tips on how to build a strong foundation for their financial future. Attendees will learn the basics about financial credit: what credit is, how to build credit, how credit scores are calculated, how to improve your credit score, and websites that are safe to use.
Both workshops will be provided in English and Spanish, and a complimentary dinner will be provided for each attendee.
“We are looking forward to utilizing the Bellevue Family Hub as an avenue to bring additional educational opportunities to the families and students we support,” shared Bellevue LifeSpring Executive Director Jennifer Fischer. “We are excited to partner and share the space with other local nonprofits like Hopelink, Bellevue Boys and Girls Club, Bellevue College, Eastside Legal Assistance Program, Seattle Jobs Initiatives, and others, to bring unique educational opportunities to Bellevue students and their families.”

The Hub serves as an in-person resource center for students and families to visit and access services, including food support, emergency rent support, new school clothing, and any other immediate emergent needs they may have. Our community partners and other local nonprofits are also invited and encouraged to utilize the Hub space to offer their own unique services for Bellevue students and families.
The Hub is also a great place to volunteer your time to support local children and families. Join us as a Bellevue LifeSpring Family Advocate.
