Student learns benefits of work

Youth program connects students with jobs

Posted: Wednesday, August 22, 2018 12:00 am

Destinee Long, a senior from Walnut Grove High School, spent five weeks this summer discovering the responsibilities and benefits that come with being employed.

This opportunity was made possible by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act In-School Youth Program. Long worked as a customer service and clerical assistant at the Monroe Police Department, giving her experience in interacting with the public and co-workers. She developed valuable organizational skills, a general knowledge of office and worksite procedures, as well as an understanding of what it means to be employed.
