The EWIB Youth Committee membership is made up of Board Members, partners, and stakeholders from the community who all share a mission: to promote, advocate for, and support collaborative opportunities that enable all the region’s youth to acquire the necessary skills to transition into the workforce, further their education and training and pursue their careers to become productive, responsible citizens. They devise a strategic plan for action; oversee youth initiatives, programs and training opportunities.
The EWIB youth initiatives and programs are linked closely to the local labor market needs and community youth programs and services, with strong connections between academic and occupational learning. Youth programs promote leadership development and citizenship through voluntary community service opportunities.
New! The Pitre STEM Leadership Scholarship is now being administered by the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut.
