Youth & Young Adult Resource Fair
Saturday, December 7, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
COA Goldin Center, 2320 W. Burleigh St., Milwaukee
Young people ages 16 to 24 are invited to attend a resource fair designed just for them. The Youth & Young Adult Resource Fair will provide information on education, services, training, and employment opportunities for young people seeking to make the most of their time and talents.
This new resource fair was created by the Coalition on Lead Emergency (COLE) workforce development committee, made up of members of Community Advocates Public Policy Institute, Milwaukee Water Commons, and Sherman Park Community Association. It will be held on Saturday, December 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at COA Goldin Center, 2320 W. Burleigh St., Milwaukee. It’s free and youth and parents are welcome to attend.
“Young people are interested in getting a head start on their career and education, but they say that they aren’t aware of all of the opportunities available to them in Milwaukee,” said Terri Irving, Public Policy Associate at Community Advocates Public Policy Institute. “We created this resource fair so they can get information, meet with organizations that are actively looking for new participants, and begin creating a foundation for a good career.”
Participating agencies include America Works of Wisconsin, AmeriCorps, Career Pathways at MATC, Employ Milwaukee, Covering Wisconsin, Earn & Learn, Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission, MPS Youth Apprenticeship Program, Public Allies Milwaukee, Volunteers of America, and more.
Media are welcome to attend this resource fair. Contact Terri Irving at 414-793-0138 firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
