We know it is only February but time moves quickly and summer will be here in the blink of an eye. Time spent learning translates into a better prepared workforce and the Mesa County Business Education Foundation (MCBEF) is committed to helping identify and support community initiatives that offer opportunities for learning outside the classroom and/or on the job. With that in mind, the Foundation has teamed with other community organizations to offer a unique opportunity for parents to learn about summer options for younger age students and summer employment opportunities for high schoolers at one location at one time.
The event, dubbed the Summer Youth Employment and Enrichment Fair will take place on March 16th, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Grand Junction High School and is sponsored by Western Rockies Federal Credit Union. Booths from a variety of organizations will offer timely information and opportunities for one-on-one dialogue. If an organization would like to be a part of the Fair, they are urged to contact Terri Smatla at the Chamber (970-263-2916). There is no cost for non-profit organizations to exhibit and a small fee is assessed on for profit entities. There is also no cost to attend for parents and students interested in exploring options for maximizing their summer time experiences so mark your calendars now!
