Portland Multnomah Youth Corps needs Volunteers

Mayor Adams has started a career path program called The Portland Multnomah Youth Corps. It connects students entering 9th grade with summer career exposure and college visits. They are in desperate need of a few more volunteers. It is a big commitment; a day a week for five weeks but I think it will be very rewarding. I am sure it will have a very positive impact on the kids. Official fliers are attached but here is a short version. This is a VERY GOOD project in desperate need of just a few more quality volunteers. Is there any chance you can spread the word?   Time is very short, if anyone is interested please call or email as soon as possible.
