Thank you to everyone who attended, supported, and spoke at the Youth Summer Employment Summit (hosted by Mayor Filner and Councilmember Lightner.) Our City Council is leading by example - Councilmember Mark Kersey is the latest to hire an intern this summer! 

Thanks to coverage of this great event, 17 new businesses have shown interest. However, more motivated young adults are ready to prove their value to employers. Please check out our CONNECT2Careers site for more information. Hiring an intern is easy - help develop our future workforce...today.
Also, our new project to support those who have experienced long-term unemployment (Platform2Employment) has celebrated its first graduating class. These motivated graduates are interning with local businesses and excited to return to employment.  Check out these, and other great stories below.
