Quarterly Membership MEETING SCHEDULE
September 25, 5-6 p.m. | Village Theatre Anderson Room | Guest Speakers Jonathan Hopkins from Lime & Brent Arbes from WorkSource Snohomish | snacks provided
Jonathan from Lime will present learnings from scooters in Everett and across the Pacific Northwest, and discuss evolution of the program to maximize community benefit. He will also share best practice partnerships and explore innovative partnerships and collaboration that could benefit Everett.
Sergeant Zeka will introduce Everett’s new AmeriCorp VISTA program member, Elizabeth Ma, who has been assigned to the Everett Police Department through a grant received by EPD partners PAARI (Police Addiction and Recovery Initiative).
We'll also hear about the Transitional Job Program, a subsidized employment program through WorkSource that provides businesses the opportunity to provide time-limited employment opportunities to individuals directly or indirectly affected by the opioid crisis in Snohomish County. The Employment Security Department is the employer of record and pays 100% of the wages for the trainees, and the businesses are able to interview, assess, hire the trainee(s), and set the work schedule as they would for any other employee. Brent will give a brief summary of the program, explain the processes, and answer questions.
Quarterly meetings are open to the public.
