The City is seeking residents to participate in a one-year initiative designed to help those who have completed high school and have either declined to attend, or dropped out of college or trade school or are unable to maintain employment.
The Opportunity Fair will include presentations by employment, educational, vocational and health-service providers and other community organizations that help residents overcome barriers toward entering careers that require higher levels of traditional, non-academic or technical education or skill development.
This program is intended to open doors to careers with higher wages and employment success. It is open to residents impacted by systemic racism and institutional inequity that has created institutional barriers to obtaining a quality education and equitable employment.

Eligible participants will receive assistance with enrollment in vocational training, earning a college degree, a trade license or certificate or help with enrolling in a workforce development program to earn a skilled-trade certificate.
