Nearstory
A map that only shows topography, roads, rivers, elevation and human settlements is a shallow map. isn’t it? A better map would explore why certain places have certain names; names are the handles of story, aren’t they? And each part of a place is not only a dell, a thicket, a bend on the river, a meadow, but a collection of the things that happened there over more years than we can count.

Nearstory believes that change is underway on how we interact with our surroundings. With the introduction of Amazon’s Echo an Google's home, we now have hands free computing requiring less screen time. Autonomous cars are heading our way and augmented reality interfaces matched with location relevant information is going to become more important. The world is going to become our screen and we need to find ways to make information work with that new interface.

SummerWorks is a program that connects youth between the ages of 16-24 who live in Multnomah and Washington Counties to internships and summer jobs between June and September. SummerWorks provides a range of job opportunities to participants in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. The positions range from internships with Senators, Mayors, and County Commissioners, to welding apprenticeships and other manufacturing jobs, to nonprofit work, to public sector jobs, to professional positions in law offices and architects, to food service positions and concessions jobs at the zoo.

In 2017, SummerWorks placed 1150 youth across the Portland Region into jobs, most of whom were from low income households, and over 80% were from communities of color. Traditionally, these youth have had the most difficulty with finding and retaining employment, especially employment with a career focus. SummerWorks seeks to bridge the barriers and get these young adults into positions where they can gain exposure to new career paths, learn workplace skills, gain valuable experience for their resumes – and just as importantly, earn a pay? check. We pay the Interns the minimum wage, no cost to the work site.

Youth must complete Work Readiness Training to participate and are paired with a SummerWorks Success Coach who helps guide them through the world of work. They also are offered financial literacy training, the opportunity to open a checking account? in ?a local credit union, and supportive services like bus passes to get to and from work.
