"FACE" Youth Awareness
Food, Horticulture/Agriculture Career Exploration
WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE "FACE" PROGRAM
The "FACE" Youth Awareness project has been developed to create a greater awareness and understanding between youth and employers in the Food Service and Agriculture-Horticulture sectors. By partnering with employers in these sectors, we will be able to assist youth to develop career planning strategies, increase connections to potential employers and assist them to find employment. Employers will gain an increased awareness of youth as potential employees.
