Rensselaer County Summer Youth Employment Program

The Summer Youth Employment teens came to the Sanctuary and helped with certain project, from media to community outreach to gain valuable skills that can be used to help them in their job search. This program gives youth the right idea about the job search, and important experience that can be put towards their future resumes.
