The Learning Connection’s JobX and WIA Youth Programs have worked with over 120 youth ages 16-24 providing career guidance, employability skills and work experience opportunities this year.
A big thank you goes out to all employers who hire local youth and provide them with an opportunity to gain important work skills and positive habits of work! JobX would especially like to thank those employers and agencies that hosted and supported new workers at their work site by training, mentoring and supervising them throughout the time of their internship.
This special thanks goes to: Trail Mix, Juneau-Douglas City Museum, Alaska Geographic, SAGA, Centennial Hall, Treadwell Arena, Juneau Public Health, Sealaska Corporation, City and Borough of Juneau Public Works, Alaska Department of Labor, Alaska Department of Administration, Alaska State Library, Les Schwab, Alaska Travel Adventures, Tlingit and Haida Headstart, AWARE, S & S Sounds, Alaska Department of Fish & Game and Landscape Alaska — your collective dedication to these youth goes a long way toward guiding them to improved future opportunities and a healthier Juneau community!
This program is available through grant funding from the Division of Business Partnerships at the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development – Alaska Youth First and Workforce Investment Act for Youth.
