Employment and Training Inc. of Fulton County, a satellite office of the Pennsylvania CareerLink Huntingdon County, recognized five area youths for their recent accomplishments in the Out- of-School Youth Work Experience Program.

The Youth Work Experience Program provides youths an opportunity to be employed at host worksites. Businesses served as host worksites, mentors, and supervised work experience participants. Host worksites included Cardinal Glen Terrace, Fulton County Library, McConnellsburg Motor and Implement, and True North Wellness.

In addition to employment opportunities, all youths participated in occupational foundation classes that were held at the Employment and Training Office in Fulton County. Pre-employment classes covered a variety of topics including: workplace communication, how to succeed in the workplace, labor market orientation, job-searching techniques, interview and resume preparation skills, and financial literacy. Guest speakers for the occupational foundation classes included Tina Imes from Allegheny College of Maryland and Bertha Peffer from F&M Trust.
