The Summer Youth Employment and Enrichment Fair was held on March 16, 2017 at Grand Junction High School.  It was the 5th year of the event, and there were 32 businesses and organizations that offered enrichment activities for elementary and middle school students, and employment opportunities for high school students.  The Fair was a huge success with many students filling out job applications, and learning about the various options available to them to fill their summer months.

We look forward to having even a bigger turnout for the 6th Annual Fair in 2018!
