“We are very excited to partner with a number of important local organizations to help identify employment opportunities for New Rochelle youth,” said Daniel Bonnet, Director of The Guidance Center of Westchester's Center for College & Careers.
“In our MBKNewRo initiative, Milestones Four and Five address the need for youth to receive vocational training and find employment after college, so we are thrilled to play a role in getting what we hope will be regular Youth Job Fairs off the ground,” added Councilman Jared Rice, Co-Chair of MBKNewRo.
In addition to MBKNewRo and The Guidance Center of Westchester, other organizations supporting this Youth Job Fair include the New Rochelle Youth Bureau, the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce, Monroe College and the Business Council of Westchester.
Bonnet encourages youth attendees to bring copies of their resume and “dress to impress.”
The Monroe College Athletic Complex is located at 19 LeCount Place. For more information email Dan Bonnet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
