Youth success story

"This has been a really good program and I know it will help me no matter what career I eventually get in to."

Chris Ferroni, along with two other Cascade youth, participated in the Workforce Investment Act Youth Work Experience Program with the Cascade Ranger District of the Boise National Forest over the summer. The three youth spent time in highly traveled recreation areas and worked in remote, pristine vicinities developing strong work habits and learning new skills.
