  • ResCare Workforce Services at PA CareerLink® Cumberland County in Carlisle, Pennsylvania has been fortunate enough to meet a young lady by the name of Jisauri.

    Jisauri was born in Puerto Rico and moved here when she was just three years old.  Chambersburg, Pennsylvania was where she would come to reside with her family. When Jisauri was sixteen she came to ResCare Workforce Service with a passion to work. She was looking forward to getting the necessary tools to help build her soft skills while at the same time getting more experience with customers.

    Jisuari had little to no work experience at this point but had grown up looking after her siblings. She, as well as her siblings, had been going to The Boys and Girls Club of Chambersburg and Shippensburg. There she would learn to grow and flourish in her Paid Work Experience under the supervision of Jeanne Clark. Thanks to the PA CareerLink® of Cumberland County, Jisuari is well on her way to a prosperous future.

  • It was an extraordinary couple of days for some Lebanon High School students during a two-day “Raspberry Pi” computer science class taught by Harrisburg University of Science and Technology!

    The students assembled their own computer while learning about hardware components and how they interact. Additionally, they learned about computer programming, functions, variables, data types, and the operating system Linux.

    The IU13 Lebanon Youth program would like to offer a special thanks to our highly valued partnerships with SCPa Works, Lebanon High School and especially Mr. Clint Hibshman, Lebanon High’s Community Based Education Coordinator.

    “Raspberry Pi” is a PC/Hardware system, built by and programmed completely by students. It is a top-to-bottom immersion into computing and coding.  Over 150 students in the South Central region have participated in this innovative program thus far. SCPa Works is proud to partner with Harrisburg University on this initiative.
