    Workforce Services: Programs and Resources for Businesses​

    Thurston County Chamber's Workforce Development programs support businesses businesses across Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Grays Harbor and Pacific counties with recruitment, training, and retention best practices; and how to utilize federal investments to offset costs. We are focused on connecting our businesses with employees, while balancing the needs of our workforce to find occupations that lead to self-sufficiency.

In her time at the Chamber, Christina is especially proud of her work with the Inspire platform which provides local youth with a virtual mentor to assist in professional development. Christina started the Inspire Program as an AmeriCorps and was responsible for launching it in 2014.
