Big cuts on the federal level are working their way down to Central Oregon. Tuesday in Redmond, supporters of the Youth Build Program are gathering to show the media, politicians and others how $1.2 million in federal cuts will affect people here. Youth Build spokesperson Laura Handy says the program helps high school drop-outs get on the job training and the equivalent of a high school diploma. They work on affordable housing projects for low-income families in Central Oregon. “Youth Build has a ripple effect on its local community, because as we work with young people to transform their own lives. They serve the community while they do that. First of all, we're going to lose the economic stimulus of close to $1-million of wages not paid to youth and staff.” Secondly, she says these young people won't get the help they need to be productive members of society. The "Community Impact Forum" runs from 11 am to 1 pm today.
