StrongerTowns, a Port Townsend based non-profit supporting innovation in rural communities that result in nationally scalable improvements to education, environment and economy. StrongerTowns has incubated three programs that use intergenerational networks and asset-based approaches to prepare our most valuable resource – our youth – to thrive and contribute to our local economy: Skillmation, the Youth Activities Site, and Project Benji. Agnes will be sharing information about a new project called Becoming Professional, a job skills seminar series for youth ages 16-24 presented by local businesses to build the skills and networks of our community’s future workforce. Agnes is seeking community input to launch the project in Spring 2019.
Laura Tucker from JeffCo Public Health, Environmental Health Dept. will speak about the big changes in our county recycling program.
