Illinois Ag Teachers and Guidance Counselors- 
Please consider including this activity in an upcoming class that you teach, or at least forward to any of your students who might be interested in green and sustainable careers. The event is being hosted by Gary Comer FFA Chapter in Chicago. 
Spring Forward Green Career Fair- April 20th from 5:00-7:00pm

The Gary Comer Youth Center and the Gary Comer FFA Chapter invite you and your class to GCYC's Spring Forward Green Career Fair taking place April 20th, 2021 from 5:00-7:00pm. This event prepares young people to be stewards of the earth through conversations with business, community, educational, and entrepreneurial leaders. By coming together and sharing ideas about today’s environmental issues, participants will learn, grow and drive the change they want to see. 

This virtual event will feature a diverse group of professionals, both early and late in their careers, in a wide array of industries, including scientists, engineers, farmers, doctors, business owners, activists, and more. This virtual career fair will have space for young people to learn more about these careers and how their own future careers could impact our earth and their communities.

This event is free, and registration is now open. All students are invited to join this event. Students can register using this link:
