A state lawmaker is hosting an event designed to help young people find resources, activities and employment opportunities this summer.
Rep. Johanny Cepeda-Freytiz announced that the Youth Resource Fair will provide parents and young people with the information they need to have a productive and healthy summer.
The event will be held Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Olivet Boys & Girls Club at 677 Clinton St.
“This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about CHIP enrollment, college planning, financial literacy, summer job programs and much more,” Cepeda-Freytiz said. “As a parent, I know firsthand how important it is to provide guidance to the young ones. I want them to take advantage of all the great programs available in our community, especially now as summer approaches.”
Cepeda-Freytiz said the event will showcase services and programs offered by a wide range of local organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks, the Reading Recreation Commission, the Berks Career & Technology Center, the Reading YMCA and Berks Teens.
“The fair will highlight summer programming in our community and will be a family-oriented event that will feature more than 24 vendors,” she said. “I am glad to bring the first of many other fairs that will be targeted to parents and youth of the 129th legislative district.”
Additionally, Cepeda-Freytiz said her staff will be there to assist with state-related questions.
