The Southwest Washington Workforce Development Council, its partners, and local area employers have created more than 700 summer jobs for low-income 14-24 year olds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The goal of the program is to provide youth who have limited work experience an opportunity to develop general workplace skills, learn job specific skills, and earn a paycheck. SWWDC received $2.2 million in federal stimulus funds to implement the program in Clark, Cowlitz, and Wahkiakum counties this summer.
