2011 Youth in Transition
Career Immersion Day
Nonprofit Organization: Future Link
Project Description: A grant of $25,000 was for Career Immersion Days at four corporate site visits: Washington Adventist Hospital, Marriott, and Kaiser Permanente, and Sodexho. Youth learned about a variety of careers (from mail room to board room) and opportunities for employment. In addition, these immersion days linked local corporations to hard working youth wanting to work at and excel at in–demand careers.
