We have exciting news! Thanks to the support of Pac Mountain Workforce Development Council, and with the partnership of Grays Harbor Youth Works, we are offering summer employment for students in GH with IEP or 504 plans!
After a period of training here at our office, participants will be placed in employment at a variety of locations throughout the community. The program offers 55 hours of paid employment.
It's a great way to get a jumpstart on your career plans, and save some money for college... or whatever!
The program starts very soon, and there are only 12 openings, so don't wait! Give us a call here at the Arc office for details.
In keeping with our philosophy of intentional inclusion, we are partnering with a variety of community based organizations. We’re very excited to work with GH County Public Health and their community garden program. The local program is modeled upon one successfully implemented in Olympia called GRuB.
Looking to start up a garden? The Grubb institute may be just what you are looking for. The organization is located in Olympia Washington. They are currently working with the community and youth of Mason County/ Grays Harbor to promote a better way of life through gardening.
Grub's Mission statement
- We inspire positive personal and community change by bringing people together around food and agriculture.
- We partner with youth and people with low-incomes to create empowering individual & community food solutions.
- We offer tools & trainings to help build a just & sustainable food system.
GRuB offers assistance to individuals, families, and non-profit organization who would like to start a garden. GRuB provides help with soil preparation, tools, and seeds to start a garden. They provide a sliding fee scale for those who are interested and have a low income. Their goal is to help the community learn the importance of nutritional value fresh produce provides and a chance to gain a new hobby. It gives challenged youth an outlet to stay involved in the community in a positive manner. GRuB has employment opportunities for those who may be interested. For more information contact:
