Every spring, Civicorps holds a College and Career Fair to inspire and inform our Corpsmembers as they consider their futures after graduation. We held our latest College and Career Fair on Friday, April 5. During a series of presentations, students learned about new trades and certificated programs, asked questions, and had the opportunity to network with representatives from a number of Bay Area vocational and educational organizations. Many thanks to our partners who sent representatives to Civicorps to ignite our students’ imaginations about their future:
- Youth Radio
- AC Transit
- Merritt College Arborist Apprenticeship Program
- Restaurant Opportunities Centers United
- Berkeley City College
- Diablo Valley College
We also had the pleasure of learning from a panel of Civicorps alumni about their career pathways after graduation. Thank you to Effrey Jamal Simms, Class of 2013, independent graphic designer; Serena Saechao, Class of 2015, City of Oakland; and Roxanna Elias, Class of 2016, medical assistant. We are lucky to have received your valuable advice.
Our students are now on Spring Break, and we’ll be excited to welcome them back after a well-deserved respite. We also look forward to meeting our newest group of Corpsmembers at our April 16 orientation.
