This Saturday, March 22nd, from 10am until 2pm, a Youth Job and Resource Fair will take place at the Sacramento City Hall at 915 I street. The event is geared towards Sacramento’s youth population, and young people aged 16 to 24 are encouraged to attend.
According to bizjournals.com, “the Sacramento region placed 97th on a list of the 100 largest U.S cities ranked by employment rate for young people… for teenagers, the region placed 82nd.” Events such as the Youth Job and Resource Fair provide the vital opportunity to change these statistics.
Hosted by the Neighborhood Services Division of the City of Sacramento’s Parks and Recreation Department, the Youth Job and Resource Fair will include employers seeking youth who are available for summer jobs, organizations seeking youth available for volunteer opportunities, and “resume, application and mock interview workshops to assist youth in their pursuit of employment.” (sacculturalhub.com)
“For some period of time I thought that it was a bit harder for youth to get employment, but I think right now might be an interesting time as new jobs are opening up,” says Sacramento resident Nate Clifford. “There is a lot of potential for kids that have good technological skills.”
Access Sacramento will be one of many organizations present at the Youth Job and Resource Fair. Youth who have experience with video editing or journalism are especially eligible for a position with Access Sacramento.
