SAN BERNARDINO – Working towards the future of the County of San Bernardino starts now and begins by promoting experience and strong work ethic among our youth. This is why the County of San Bernardino has offered numerous opportunities to connect youth with knowledge, opportunities, and even experience to help them achieve gainful employment.
Recently, the County of San Bernardino matched youth up with local manufacturers at the “Made in the High Desert” Job Fair. Teens were able to meet with local manufacturers to learn more about a growing industry with competitive pay. Now, the County of San Bernardino and the Foundation for California Community Colleges have joined forces to provide paid work experience to over 400 youth. “This agreement exemplifies the Board of Supervisors’ commitment to strengthen our local economy by working with the education community to meet workforce needs,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Lovingood. This amazing new opportunity is part of a partnership between the county’s Workforce Development Board, school districts, community colleges and private businesses and will place 420 youth in work-based learning sites for the duration of a three-year agreement.
Employers and job seekers who are interested in the Workforce Development Board programs may call: (800) 451-JOBS or visit www.sbcounty.gov/workforce.
