The fourth annual Inspire Youth@Work Summer Opportunities Fair is tentatively slated to be held in early spring 2018.
This unique job and opportunity fair is the ONLY one in the area with a mission to connect young people (ages 14 – 24) with government, businesses and not-for-profit organizations that are looking to fill summer jobs, volunteer programs, internships, resources, and leadership development opportunities.
This event is expected to draw over 300 – 500 attendees from the city and surrounding counties. Hosted by the Capital Region Workforce Partnership, Resource Workforce Development Board, and the Capital Region Transition Council and Inspire Youth Network, this FREE event also aims to raise awareness about resources and programs available and provide success tips on resume and interview preparation for the young adults in our community.
