Funds raised will benefit GGP’s educational programs developed with the mission to “Prepare Tomorrow’s Workforce Today.” These valuable programs include youth workforce training, Career Readiness and Career Awareness events, and the High School Internship program. The multi-faceted workforce training program was launched in 2012 by GGP founding director Frank Samuel, who was passionate about preparing young people for successful careers. Since the program’s inception, when nine (9) high school students were matched with sponsoring employers for summer internships, the programs have grown exponentially. In 2016 alone, more than 1,200 Geauga County students participated in GGP’s Youth Workforce training programs.
