The CCCOE work program is designed to partner with local businesses to offer job experience for local youth. The program compensates youth for 100-200 hours of work experience, while the work site provides on-the-job learning opportunities. As a partner work site, the Antioch Recreation department has hosted several program participants over the past year, and from those, a spotlight participant has been O’ne Moore. O’ne is a Deer Valley High School student and has been an excellent addition to our entire department. She’s worked in various areas of Parks and Recreation, including pre-school, special events, admin back-office work, and photography for the upcoming recreation guide. The program not only provides valuable learning experiences for these youth, but also gives us an opportunity to hire them after their time in the program is over. We are excited to welcome O’ne back for our upcoming Summer Camp and to continue working with the Office of Education to support more students in the future.
