Connecting Stark County
Stark County has programs, schools, colleges, and individuals who want to support youth as they move into productive, meaningful, and self-sustaining lives. There are social services providers, work training programs, and financial resources for those in need. However Moline noticed there is a disconnect of information, business relationships, and mentors. This is why the program exists to bridge gaps of information.
