“This is a great service,” said Mary Eidmann, stormwater specialist with City of Burien. “The Puget Sound Skills Center helps young people build their careers and this gives them a chance to give back, too. The program is so popular among students that it runs at full capacity with a waiting list each semester.”

The PSSC helps high school juniors and seniors earn college credits in a hands-on, workplace-oriented environment. The PSSC is one of 20 skills centers in Washington, offering high quality, tuition-free technical and professional training. Operated by Highline Public Schools, PSSC has students from 22 partner high schools in Highline, Federal Way, Tukwila and Tahoma school districts.
