Albany-- High school students from Dougherty, Lee, and Terrell counties attended the second annual Youth Workforce Conference at Albany Technical College today.

The Department of Labor hosted the conference to help students learn what employers will expect from them. Labor Department leaders say it is a great way for students to get ahead in the workforce.

"And so today the young people will be learning life skills, job readiness skills and things of that nature to help prepare them for the future, we have a group of ninth graders from surrounding schools in the Albany area"said J.R. Henderson with the GA Department of Labor. 

This year's event featured Keynote Speaker Kenneth Cutts from Congressman Sanford Bishops office as well as WALB News Ten's Karla Heath-Sands.
