We are so excited about the Intel Future Skills program and how it will enhance job opportunities for our young people and uniquely prepare them for their own futures.”
Components of the Intel Future Skills program includes:
• Creating new tech innovations.
• Responding to community, government or personal challenges.
• Build confidence and skills in an emerging field.
• Finding employment opportunities in the tech field.
• And more.
Melinda Alvarado recently joined the Corps as part of the LA River Corps team. With her eyes on her future, Melinda shared, “It means the world to be a part of this. I see it as an opportunity for my future. I’m actually speechless right now! It makes me feel good; like I’m going to become someone better. This is a really good way to start processing where I want to go. My resume’s gonna be pretty good!”
The training for the very first Intel Future Skills program cohort will commence on August 14, 2017 and run through November. For more information about the program, please contact Kea Duggan at 213-362-9000 x215.
