Quality Jobs Initiative for Unemployed Young Adults

Commitment by

Coalfield Development Corporation

In 2014, Coalfield committed to triple the scale of its job training and mentorship operations by replicating QJI in neighboring Lincoln and Mingo Counties. Twelve youth from the two counties will be recruited from local partner high schools to participate in the two-year program, which will result in each youth attaining four professional 'green' construction certifications.
