Career Fair: Preparing our Scholars for a Life of Choice & Opportunity
On Saturday, April 29, Denver Urban Scholars will host a Career Fair from 11am-1:30pm. The goals of this event are to expose our Scholars to a wide variety of career opportunities and deepen Denver Urban Scholar’s ongoing relationships with area businesses and community members.
This event presents a unique opportunity for businesses and other local organizations to learn more about our Scholars and how we support them in their life journeys. Our current Scholars have expressed interest in Finance, Photography, Art, Business, Marketing, Public Relations, Communications, Public Service, Government, Hospitality, Food Service, Human Service, Construction, Cosmetology, and Health Care.
Mentors are encouraged to attend with their mentees, as this is a great way to support them in their career readiness and practice being a co-pilot. We are excited for this event and the opportunity to connect our Scholars with community organizations! If you are interested in this event, or have any questions about it, please contact Cami Tam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
