Thirty-two Anne Arundel County Youth will be honored in a Closing Celebration for their participation in the YouthWorks! Summer Work Experience Program this Friday. Participants will receive recognition from Senator Benjamin L. Cardin and motivational words from business owner Charles Duckett.

Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation (AAWDC) partnered with the Department of Social Services and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to provide work experiences for foster and disabled youth, where they learned valuable work skills and expectations of the workplace. Additional youth participated in the six-week program through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding. Participants were placed in 1 of 17 worksites in government agencies, organizations and companies throughout the county.

The event will take place Friday, August 13, 2010 from 9:30am – 11:30am at the Arnold One-Stop Career Center, 1460 Ritchie Hwy, Suite 109, Arnold, MD 21012.
