Berkshire organizations receive summer jobs funding
Five Berkshire County entities are among 73 organizations across the state that have received nearly $300,000 from the state Attorney General's Office to fund summer jobs for young people. The positions are focused on promoting health and wellness. Grantees have adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic in a number of ways, including providing personal protective equipment, social distancing, and transitioning to virtual workspaces. This is the sixth year that the AG's Office is running the Healthy Summer Youth Jobs Grant Program
The Berkshire organizations that have received the funding are Many Forks Farm in Clarksburg; Berkshire South Regional Community Center in Great Barrington; Northern Berkshire Community Coalition in North Adams; Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in North Adams; and Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield.
