Workforce Development team testifies at the Capitol

Photos and Story by

Amy Youngflesh (center, light jacket) rallies her troops before they testified today at the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, at the Capitol in Salem.

Amy is the director of the Workforce Development Program and operates out of PCC’s Portland Metro Workforce Training Center.

Her folks were on hand to talk about truly life-saving federal programs, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF. For many low-income Oregonians, such programs are the difference between making it to the end of the month and not making it. Amy’s folks did a great job of telling truly compelling stories.

The delegation also included folks from Mount Hood Community College in Gresham.

The subcommittee, by the way, is co-chaired by Rep. Tina Kotek, who serves portions of North Portland near the Cascade Campus.
