The War on Drugs has disproportionately affected communities of color, Indigenous communities, and rural communities.

The McKinleyville Family Resource Center offers young adults (16 - 24 years old) in our community the chance to join a 12-week cohort, where folks learn about resources available to them, are given opportunities to develop their skills through internships, participate in trainings and resume workshops, and receive supportive services around transportation, clothing, and gathering right to work documents, all while getting paid!
We are looking for 4-6 participants for our next cohort beginning in Spring 2024. Please fill out our google form here to let us know you are interested, and we will contact you regarding enrollment February 2024.
