Outreach – Center for Community Resources Children’s Career Fair

Members News

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

Driving Children’s Futures is this year’s theme as Outreach offers the opportunity for kids of all ages to learn about the multiple forms of vehicles utilized in careers today. A tank, ambulance, fire truck, skid steer, and several other large trucks will be on display for kids to explore while interacting with the professionals that handle them on a daily basis.

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 gain an understanding of 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!
