In June, Ranita enrolled youth #92 in our Youth Employment Program (YEP).  Since it is a pretty big number, Ranita decided to do some math… Since 2008, YEP has invested $53,360 in paid, community-based work opportunities for 92 youth with cross-disabilities representing Douglas County.  To clarify, Indpendence, Inc. and it's generous supporters have paid $53,360 in wages to the kids in our program. Here is one of our youth getting picking up her first paycheck!

How should we celebrate the big 100?
