Without a ride to work, it would have been a lot more difficult for Ronika Ford to get her first part-time job working at the Arlington Echo Outdoor Educational Center a few miles from her Annapolis home. Ford, 18, worked for two summers mulching trails and testing water quality in the West River as part of a youth summer jobs program at the Anne Arundel County Community Action Agency. She didn't have a car, but the program provided training, transportation to and from the work site and free lunches — offerings that Ford said were essential to her success at the Millersville job. Officials at the agency, which has traditionally relied on government funding, have grown concerned over the past few years about their ability to maintain that range of services.
