   I.     Call to Order – at 3:39 p.m. Gregg Johnson chaired the meeting.

   II.    Review Meeting Summary – Reviewed.

   III.   Summary of Current Events – Gregg has been invited to the Faith-Based
          meeting on Tuesday, September 1. An agenda item at this meeting is:
          “Yearn Grant Youth Employment and Reentry Network”. Gregg will provide
          information about this program at the September Youth Council meeting.
          Gregg mentioned that two new subcommittees were formed as a result of the
          WIB Retreat. Clayton Hamilton summarized the mission of these two new
          WIB committees. The Community Coalition Committee will focus on creating
          a higher profile for the WIB and developing a public relations strategy that
          builds on the current community awareness of WIB and One Stop Services.
          The Skilled Employee Resource Development Committee goals will be
          facilitating connections with existing private sector resources that target this
          population, addressing the needs of this population (i.e. résumé writing,
          interviewing skills and connecting to businesses), exploring ways to aid the
          increasing number of the 50+ population, and exploring opportunities for
          partnering with employers and employment agencies. Clayton also
          mentioned that the WIB Membership committee has been reformed and is
          now called the Board Development Committee with a mission to find key
          people in the targeted industries and business community to join the WIB.
IV.     Revisit Youth Council’s Goals – The committee discussed current
        programs and ideas for helping the youth population become more
        successful. Gregg suggested having a Retreat to explore the future goals for
        the council. Gregg will ask staff if there are funds available for a retreat.

V.      Summer Youth Program Update – Dana Katbah distributed a graph
        showing the “Summer Youth Employment Participates by Age 5/1/09 –
        8/13/09”. There were 1,447 youth involved in all of the summer programs
        and 751 youth were funded by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
        (ARRA). There are 143 worksites in Pima County involved in the summer
        youth program. Gregg asked two questions: 1) how did the program
        compare to last year and 2) how can the Youth Council help enhance the
        program for next year. Dana replied there were 3,000 applicants for 2008
        and this year there were 5,000 applicants and more involvement from the
        community (private industry) and increased awareness of the program would
        be beneficial.

VI.     Announcements – Amanda Kucich announced that there is a United Way’s
        Youth Development Coalition (YDC) and invited the council to attend a
        meeting. The YDC meets the 4th Tuesday of every month in the Sentinel
        Building at the Community Resource Center located at 320 Commerce Park
        Loop. The next meeting will be September 28th.

VII.    Next meeting: September 23, 2009, 3:30 p.m. at University of Phoenix (the
        meeting day has been changed to the 4th Wednesday of the month and
        there will be no meeting in December.)

VIII.   Adjournment – 4:37 p.m.
