Living Wage Project
Families and youth in Lemhi County are at high risk for not making a living wage after high school. In order to address the needs of these at-risk individuals, a multi-year, multi-faceted partnership program is being developed.
The program, parenting with local schools, job services, civic organizations, 4-H and the local Chamber of Commerce, will help youth and adults develop skills and the support necessary to prepare for living wage jobs.
Projects include a youth entrepreneurial leadership project and a college support program.
