Young Leaders Office Opens in Oakland Neighborhood Center, Haines City

CareerSource Polk is grateful for the outpouring of support from the Haines City Commission, the leadership team at the City of  Haines City, the Northeast Polk Chamber of Commerce, and the entire Polk County community as we opened a CareerSource Polk Young Leaders office in the Oakland Neighborhood Center on Thursday, May 16, 2024. Over 100 community members showed up for our Open House and Ribbon Cutting to celebrate the presence and services this new office is bringing to one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Expanding our partnerships with local employers in and around the Haines City area is at the forefront of our goals. If you and your company are interested in actively developing the workforce in your area, please consider hosting an intern for the summer! CareerSource Polk will provide the participating interns with a paid stipend while your company offers real-world work experience and job coaching. These young leaders will not only earn while they learn in the workplace, but they will also receive training in financial literacy, acquire digital literacy credentials, engage in learning about nutrition, health and mental wellness, and more before their internship begins.

CareerSource Polk is proud to boast an immediate economic impact in Haines City and the surrounding area of over $840,000 in just 10 weeks through our current Youth Services initiatives. We are so pleased to be a part of such a welcoming community. It is our pleasure to add to the great work already being done in Haines City to bolster the workforce, support its business community, and prepare our young leaders for long-term success.

If your company would like to host an intern, please contact CareerSource Polk’s Business Services Team at 863-508-1100×1103.
