We have finalized a date for on-site interviewing and hiring of young adults for a summer job opportunity in Alaska. This is hard work with long hours but both room and board are provided by the employer and young people can reasonably expect to earn and save up to $5000 over the summer season. This may be ideal for transitional-age former foster youth.
Please see details below and Thank You for your interest and support.
