Outreach Call for Career Fair Volunteers

Members News

Outreach – Center for Community Resources will host its fourth annual Children’s Career Fair at Outreach, 431 North 7th Avenue, Scranton on Saturday, August 27, 2022, from 10 AM to 1 PM

Volunteers are needed for a variety of activities. Volunteers are needed from 9 am to 2 pm on the day of the event. Please consider becoming part of this community event.

It’s never too early for children to think about a career, and research shows that every experience of a child helps develop their understanding of the world. An innovative event that encourages parents and their young or elementary-aged children to engage in career exploration, the Outreach Children’s Career Fair provides an opportunity for children to interact with professionals from numerous businesses and career fields and then dream about what they want to be when they grow up! By introducing young children to potential career options early on in life, parents can keep children focused and engaged in academics throughout their school years, a building block needed to create a well-educated workforce, and help them understand their place in the world as productive, employed adults.

Children and parents will have the opportunity to explore over 30 careers through fun and interactive activities. Several local companies will also be offering information on current employment opportunities within their companies. The Outreach Children’s Career Fair is free and open to all families with children interested in interacting with businesses and exploring future career possibilities!

If interested in volunteering, please call Julie Chowanec at 570-558-7569 or email outreachworks@outreachworks.org
