David Buckholtz was an intern through UAC's WorkReady program while he was in high school. As he completes his degree at Penn State, he came back to UAC to serve as a mentor to youth in the WorkReady program this summer. We know he is destined for great things!
In this photo, David thanks Governor Wolf's Chief of Staff, Katie McGinty, after she announced $2.4M of additional state funding for summer jobs in Philadelphia.
Victory in Harrisburg! Tomorrow June 19th at 3pm Katie McGinty, Chief of Staff for Governor Tom Wolf and State Senator Vincent Hughes will announce a $7.5 million program that is expected to create 3,700 NEW summer youth jobs statewide. The program has $3.5 million in federal funding and $4 million in TANF funds through local WIA’s. We would like to thank everyone who supported the Summer Youth Employment advocacy campaign! As you know UAC has been a leading advocate for full employment for youth for many years. More details coming soon. Hope to see you tomorrow! #MyFirstJob #SaveSummerJobs
