AAMB Manager Russell Roundpoint
AAMB Youth Coordinator Clarissa Jacobs

The guests appeared on the program to announce the joint effort between the two agencies to equally provide funding for the SEED Program. Students who are looking for summer employment and employers who have positions they need filled have specific deadlines for applications and proposals to be submitted to the AAMB. All four guests stressed the fact that it will be very competitive for students and employers because of the number of students looking for jobs being so much larger than the actual number of positions they have funding for this summer.
Guests St Regis Mohawk Tribal Police Officer and Professional Fisherman PJ Burns and Akwesasne Youth Boo Thompson were on the program promoting the 2015 Kids For Fishing Event being held May 30 at the St. Regis Recreation Center and the St. Regis River.
