When Megan Mountain considered working at Sweetwater Retirement Community, she recalled living with her grandmother while growing up.
“When they asked me if I liked working with older people, I said I did,” said Mountain, 17. “They said this would be a good fit for me.”
Mountain started working at Sweetwater through the Youth Employment and Training Program administered by the Human Resources Development Council. The program, funded with a grant from federal workforce training money, provides education, training and on-the-job experience for young people who face barriers to employment.
