Governor Inslee met with two AAA students, EJ Patton and Vy Tran, to hear about their successes with the Highline Public School’s internship program. Vy and EJ Patton both interned at Urban ArtWorks.
Governor Inslee funded the Youth Works Initiative which provided internship stipends for these students through the Workforce Development Council. He also met with HS3 students Ishmael Muhammead and Abel Berhan who intern at ACE Mentor Program of Washington.
During the event, students gave a special thanks to their internship coordinator, Cindy Akana. Without Cindy, this would not be possible!
