High Peaks Start Layering Up for the Winter Season
This past summer Lake County Public Works was able to take advantage of the Governor’s Summer Job program, hiring two young adults (between the ages of 16 and 21) who were eligible to participate. Things went so well for the local program that LCPW Director Brad Palmer received a recognition award last week at a special reception at the Governor’s Mansion.
The Summer Job Hunt program is a free referral service to young adults and employers and economic circumstances are not a consideration. Proof of age and citizenship are required. Other employment and educational opportunities may be available for qualified youth.
Young adults interested in employment can go to any of the Workforce Center offices located throughout the state. The local Leadville Workforce Center is located at 115 W. 6th Street. These offices are a place where young people can meet with an employment specialist, who will assist them with job search activities and referrals.
