The Idaho Department of Labor is asking Idaho youth between the ages 16-24 who are out of school to talk about what they need to succeed in the workplace.
Participants will share their thoughts during six focus group sessions scheduled for April 19-30 at local Labor offices and several postsecondary schools throughout the state.
The project is a partnership between the Idaho Workforce Development Council, Boise State University’s Idaho Policy Institute, the Idaho Department of Labor and each of the state’s postsecondary institutions.
Multiple sessions may be conducted depending on interest.
Participants will receive a $50 Amazon gift card for the time they spend in the focus group, which is estimated to last approximately one hour. Those who are between the ages of 16-24, are out of school and interested in participating should contact one of the following Idaho Department of Labor offices in their area:
