On October 25th Wisconsin Promise hosted a community forum, Employing Young Adults with Barriers: Finding Workforce Solutions. This forum was held in Minong, WI. at Jack Links Aquatic & Activity Center and was organized by North Country Independent Living using a Promise Next Steps Funding award.
There were 45 people in attendance with a panel that included business representatives from AAA Sports Shop, Economart, and Marketplace. There was also two Promise youth and one adult on the panel sharing their experiences with employment. It was a good evening of networking among local school districts, service providers, ADRCs, families, and businesses.
