Why is the Summer Opportunities Fair so important?

This unique opportunity fair allows employers to recruit and fill their summer job openings, volunteer opportunities, internships, and leadership opportunities by connecting with hundreds of youth that are actively seeking opportunities and resources. It is not uncommon for employers to fill most of their available opportunities in one day of recruiting at the Summer Opportunities Fair.

With so many bright, energetic, and motivated young people in our region, it is a joy to connect these individuals with summer opportunities that can have a positive impact on their future. Beyond taking on new responsibilities and learning new skills, working for the first time can profoundly shape someone’s goals and prospects for the future. As an employer, not only can you benefit from the productivity of youth workers, but you can also affect positive change in a young person’s life and catapult him or her to success.
