The UMWA Career Centers Inc. will implement an outreach crisis program for youth in the rural Appalachia area of Washington, Pennsylvania.

The program will offer workshops, seminars tutoring and group support to improve the lives of fifty youth. The program will report performance measures that include community satisfaction surveys, increased school attendance, and job training skills learned. NCA/NCF
