Public invited to youth employment hearing July 19 in Peoria
On July 19, our team will be working with Katie Kelly of the Peoria Police Department to host a public hearing about youth employment, and we hope you can attend!
The State Task Force on Developing Opportunities for Youth & Young Adults Who are Jobless and Out-Of-School will be meeting from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., July 19, at the Gateway Building in Peoria.
Area organizations that work with youth, businesses, and youth themselves are being asked for their insights and suggestions about what role we – as citizens, civic leaders and business people – can play in helping young people find employment opportunities and encourage their further community involvement. The information from this public hearing will be sent to Task Force members statewide, and will be included in a report to state lawmakers later this year.
