Teen work training available

Teen Work program In response to the letter from Mike Russell, I would like to add some information that may be of interest to the Northshore community. For the past two years, the Northshore Senior Center, through their employment office (which I have been affiliated with for 8 years), has worked with the Bothell Rotary, who are interested in getting young teens interested in the work ethic and who have donated some money through our office.
   Training is available for the young teens through a program headed by Kerri O'Leary [Teen Work program sponsored by Teen Northshore], the idea being to get them interested in working and saving money, and at the same time, they will not be on the street corners getting into trouble. It has been a successful program and the people involved are to be congratulated.
