Whatcom Business Alliance launches Youth Engagement Initiative
In an effort to educate local young people on job and career opportunities, the Whatcom Business Alliance launched the Youth Engagement Initiative (YEI).
“We’re working with businesses and schools to take students into workplace facilities,” said Laura McKinney, NW Government Affairs & Public Relations Director for Alcoa who serves as Co-Chair of the YEI committee. The second co-chair is Tom Kenney, who recently retired as the Northern Washington Regional President for Washington Federal.
YEI’s first action items include job shadow opportunities, as well as on-site visits at local companies and non-profits.
