Starbucks held their first training at the CTC for 15 new employees at their new Long Beach and Willow location.  Trainees participated in various exercises from icebreakers to team building, and presentations from Pacific Gateway as well as an insightful message from Director of U.S. Social Impact for Starbucks, Rodney Hines.

"What we look for is to partner with local organizations that young people trust in their community, and for this community, that's Pacific Gateway."

-Rodney Hines

This partnership is a great opportunity for both Pacific Gateway and Starbucks to reach our local community.
