100 Jobs For 100 Kids

Here is a letter sent out to those who wanted to participate in the 2011 Fair:

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter to offer you the exciting opportunity to host a booth during our annual 100 Jobs for 100 Kids, Youth Career Fair. A project of Citizens for Safe Yakima Valley Communities, Southeast Yakima Community Center and The Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce, to be held on Monday, April 18th from 1-5 p.m. at the Southeast Yakima Community Center, located at 1211 S. 7th Street in the gymnasium.

Hosting a job fair increases a youth’s chance at gaining valuable employment information, so that they can move from high school graduate, to that important next step of employment and education. When students meet business professionals face-to-face and are given the chance to learn by hands-on experiences; their career paths are broadened, professional sites are raised, and their imaginations ignited.

Setting up a booth is easy, it’s free and it offers you the opportunity to promote your business while helping your community. We will provide a table and two chairs, as well as the chance to network with other agencies/business partners and lunch.

All you have to bring is yourself, some applications, flyers, brochures, signs or posters for your booth and if you can, please provide a DOOR PRIZE for the overall career fair. This can be as simple as a coffee cup with your agency name, McDonald Dollars, Mercy Movie Money, etc. Also, bring anything else that you might require while setting up your booth, i.e., tape, string, extension cords, etc. Set up begins at 10:00 a.m. and you must have your booth ready by 12:00 p.m. at the latest.

Thank you for your time, and I do hope that you are able to support this very important community event and help us make a better tomorrow for today’s youth!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Vernita Adolf at 509-575-6114/ moc.oohay|aatinrev#moc.oohay|aatinrev or Sondra Pieti at 509-574-0174/vog.aw.dse|iteips#vog.aw.dse|iteips. We are happy to assist in any way to make this experience a fun, and memorable one for you and your agency/business.
