DRAPER (WSLS 10) - A Pulaski woman is using her farming business to help teenagers get ready for the workforce.

Lee Spiegel runs

Pulaski Grow

in Draper, providing fresh fruits and vegetables to local restaurants and farmers markets. Now, she is turning the operation into what she calls a 'job training center' inside a working business.  

Spiegel will take classes of 14 to 18-year-olds and teach them skills like writing a resume, being interviewed and developing good customer service. Students will get the chance to practice these skills in a real working environment and receive grades on their performance.  

The classes are free-of-charge for students. The next session will begin in April.
