Chris Argue was thankful to EEC for helping him find a job and recommends our youth programs to all eligible youth. He says, “I found the EEC Youth Job Connection program very helpful. It helped me get a job, but more than that, it helped with the way I interact with people. I recommend the program to anyone I know who might be eligible!”
