Work Connections Breakfast Success!

Thank you for making the 9th annual Work Connections Breakfast our most successful yet! Together, we raised over $56,000 to help connect young adults with job training and employment opportunities, including funding for paid internships, work clothing and tools, training, transportation, and career exploration activities.

Be sure to mark your calendars for next year’s Work Connections Breakfast, happening on April 5, 2018. Event sponsors are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible – you can do so by contacting Lisa Obunge at 503.797.7222.
You can check out the 2017 Work Connection Breakfast photos here.
