A message from Tammy Biery, Executive Director of Stearns Benton Employment & Training Council

The Youth at Work Program Legislative Report features a Stearns-Benton Employment & Training Council (SBETC) participant on page 7. This program started in July 2015 and is a two year grant. In addition to the $125,000 from this competitive youth grant, SBETC received an additional $25,000 from the Morgan Family Foundation to support the work planned, since the original grant request was for $425,000. It has taken some time to get this program running, and we are hoping to get a number of students working internships, etc. this summer. If your organization is interested in hosting an intern or providing a job shadow experience, please let me know.
