Coming Up! AUSD Career Pathways and Youth Job Fair (03/15/2016)

Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) and community partners will hold a Career Pathways and Youth Job Fair on Friday March 18, 2016, from 3 to 5 pm, in the Encinal Jr. & Sr. High School gymnasium.

 

The event, which is free to all high school students in Alameda, is supported by AUSD, the City of Alameda, Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan, and the Alameda Collaborative for Children, Youth, and their Families (ACCYF).

 

During the event, high school students will have opportunities to apply for summer jobs and paid internships in local agencies and businesses, talk to representatives from the Peralta Community Colleges, and explore opportunities in vocational education.  AUSD will also provide a Resume Help Desk for students and information on the district's Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. Participants in this year's fair include:

"This is our second annual job and career fair, and I expect it will be even bigger and better than last year," said Superintendent Sean McPhetridge. "We are excited to be able to provide students with more opportunities to learn more about career opportunities and gain work experience while they're in high school or right after they graduate."

 

The job fair is part of AUSD's ongoing work with the East Bay Career Pathways Trust (CPT) consortium, which has brought together 11 school districts, six community colleges, two Regional Occupation Programs, the Alameda County Office of Education,  business partners, and professional development providers to reshape the East Bay's K-14 educational programs. AUSD is currently developing plans to strengthen and expand its career technical programs at its high schools.

 

"The partnership between the City of Alameda, AUSD, local employers, and my 'ALL IN – Alameda County' initiative is helping our youth achieve financial self-sufficiency," said Supervisor Chan, who launched the initiative in 2014 to help reduce poverty and inequality in the region.  "The job fair offers important career guidance and helps students make the connections they need to succeed in career and life. The success of this year’s job fair shows once again how deeply Alameda is committed to the well-being of its youth."

 

Alameda Mayor Trish Herrera Spencer  also praised this collaborative effort. "It is a pleasure to be able to help students explore the connection between their education and viable career paths," she said. "I am also excited that providing local career pathways can provide local businesses with a custom-made source of skilled employees."
