WHY:  This annual youth-oriented job fair helps prepare youth, regardless of what stage they are in, for success in the working world. The goal is to help youth think about and prepare for entering the workforce, whether in high school or after graduation, and to connect with local employers and professionals to be exposed to available opportunities.
