City of Baltimore Prepares to Celebrate 2018 YH2O Graduates

George Boswell came to Hazen as a 16-year-old YouthWorks intern while still in high school. He interned both through the program and with Hazen over four years and is currently a Morgan State Senior majoring in Electrical Engineering. He is pictured here with his Hazen mentor Moalie Jose.

George and his experience with YouthWorks have been featured in various local media, including an appearance on the radio and this article.

YH2O Graduating Class of 2017 with Mayor Pugh, Director of Public Works Mr. Chow, Councilman Jack Young, Moalie Jose (Hazen) and Jennifer Kaberline (Hazen).

Hazen sponsored and participated in a stream cleaning in June 2017 where the YH2O Class of 2017 helped clean Armistead Run in Baltimore as a part of their program.

Hazen has participated in several career fairs related to the YH2O Mentoring Program to provide more information and opportunities to program graduates.

We have served as YouthWorks Ambassadors since 2011. Hazen helped kick off the 2016 YouthWorks Program with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Donald Fry (president of the Greater Baltimore committee), Jason Perkins-Cohen (Director, MOED), George Boswell and Moalie Jose (Hazen).

(BALTIMORE, MD – November 9, 2018) – The City of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Water Environment Association (CWEA) will hold a graduation ceremony for the 2018 class of the YH2O Water Mentoring Program later this month.

The YH2O program is a joint partnership between the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED), Department of Public Works (DPW), and CWEA. This program offers students career mentoring with the dual goals of:

  • educating local young adults about the water industry and its career opportunities, and
  • developing a pipeline of future workers with the right skills to fill entry-level positions in the water industry.
  • The program includes career exploration, worksite tours, job-shadowing experiences, connection with a career coach, and summer job opportunities through YouthWorks — all tied to the water industry.

    Hazen and Sawyer has been a proud sponsor and supporter of both the YH2O Program and YouthWorks over the years, serving as an Ambassador for the YouthWorks program since 2011. One student, George Boswell, came to Hazen as a 16-year-old YouthWorks intern while still in high school. He interned both through the program and with Hazen over four years and is currently a Morgan State Senior majoring in Electrical Engineering. His success with Hazen has been used an inspiration for the YouthWorks Program. For more information on George and his experience with the program, visit the YouthWorks website.
