Five out of the six participants in our most recent Career Catalyst internship program session are now productively employed, and another has returned to training that was delayed by the pandemic. The program, originally hosted by our business partner, Sparrows Point Country Club, didn’t miss a beat during the pandemic as the workforce training and job seeking continued virtually in March after launching at the beginning of 2020.
