    YAP Honors Employers

    Kalamazoo RESA’s Young Adult Program marked the end of a successful year of student work experiences with their fourth annual Employer Recognition Breakfast on June 3. The program celebrated the many employers and volunteer organizations in the community who provided 50 YAP students with work experience.

    “Our students have been learning and growing so much this year with these dedicated employers who invite them in and encourage them every week,” said Connie Laurinat, YAP Work Coordinator. “We’re grateful for their welcoming guidance as our young people learn about employment and gain experience. Without this type of experience, our students wouldn’t have the chance to practice and to learn what employers really expect.”
