If so, these guys may be able to help. They were just given a bunch of money!

Workforce Solutions Borderplex were just given $25K from Bank Of America to aid them in hiring El Paso area youth out on summer break. This gives the kids a chance to earn some money and gain some valuable work experience.  According to the El Paso Herald Post, Leila Melendez, COO of Workforce Solutions Borderplex, said:

“Workforce Solutions Borderplex is honored to receive this funding from Bank of America.  This grant will allow us to place even more out-of-school students into summer jobs and provide them with good work experience they can build upon.”

“Bank of America understands and shares our urgency in providing youth with foundational skills that will help them successfully transition into the workforce. The work experience these youth will obtain will provide them with a great competitive advantage for their future.” - EPHP

Bank Of America's total donation across the board, is 40 million!  For more info on the program, eligibility requirements, age restrictions, etc; call (915) 887-2600 or click here.
