We helped organize the first annual Great Futures Fair at Miguel Contreras Learning Complex. In collaboration with Michelle Cohen from CAM’s, and the college counselor at Miguel Contreras, we hosted over 35 career, community org, and college representatives. Students engaged in classroom presentations as well as one on one conversations in a more traditional table area. Students signed up for volunteer opportunities, apprenticeships, and a few jobs. Furthermore, students recieved information on the myths and realities of military recruitment. This was an important step towards career alternatives in the westlake area.
