Community Services Consortium (CSC) put 345 youth to work in Linn, Benton and Lincoln Counties this summer utilizing stimulus dollars. These funds supported 97 jobs for young people in CSC’s Albany area and another 93 in Corvallis, 75 in Lebanon and 80 youth jobs throughout Lincoln County. CSC Youth Employment Crews are completing projects identified as areas of community need. Partner agencies include City Parks and Recreation Departments, Hatfield Marine Science Center, OSU, local Watershed Councils and local schools, rural towns, Oregon State Parks and US Fish and Wildlife. Projects include residential weatherization, environmental clean-up, research studies, and invasive species eradication, as well as work skills development projects including the new River Java Coffee Cart at Two Rivers Market in Albany. CSC’s Youth Crews are developing work skills and learning applied math and science; all while earning a paycheck.
