First County Bank Co-Hosts Mayor Pavia’s Student Employment Program Event

First County Bank and the Stamford Mayor’s Office hosted a breakfast event this morning to promote the engagement of local businesses in “The Mayor’s Youth Employment Program.” Mayor Michael Pavia shared his thoughts on the success of the program since its inception in 2011 and Cathy Bertasso, one of the directors of the program, provided an overview of the initiative for the local businesses and organizations in attendance. The program delivers a unique experience that inspires local high school students with a “real world” perspective today, while molding and shaping their skills to ensure the local community has a stronger workforce in place tomorrow. Past participating students were happy to share their positive experience of gaining hands-on experience through this summer internship.
