BGCK, Succeed Beyond High School Inc. and Education Youth Development Outreach Partner on College And Career Fair
To Be Held Friday, June 18th at the BGCK
Kenosha, WI – January 22, 2021 – With many spring break college tours already canceled for 2021 and travel limitations in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many teens aren’t able to visit colleges and universities that they normally would. In order to still expose local teens to post-secondary opportunities, Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha, Succeed Beyond High School Inc. and Education Youth Development Outreach will host a college and career fair at the BGCK on Friday, June 18th.
This event will provide youth a chance to learn more about their desired colleges/universities and will also provide workforce, vocational and military bound youth a chance to speak with individuals in their future career fields. The event is free to attend for all (youth and organizations/colleges).
Two time slots are available for attendees to allow for social distancing and a sanitizing break. Masks are required for all. The time frames are 9:30am – 11:30am and 12pm – 2pm. Youth must register for the event online HERE. Organizations or colleges interested in attending must also register HERE or by contacting Felicia or Jason.
