Sign up now to participate in the Colton college and career fair

If you’re interested in making a difference in a young person’s life and helping your own business or institution, participant applications now are being accepted for the Second Annual CJUSD College and Career Fair, to be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 11 at the Gonzales Community Center, 670 Colton Avenue in Colton.  

Four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, technical/trade schools, businesses, government agencies and non-profit organizations are welcome to participate in this event at no charge. The focus is college and career readiness.

This event is a collaborative effort of the Colton Joint Unified School District and City of Colton with sponsorship from the law firm of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo, Horace Mann Insurance (Marcos Mata), Farmers Insurance (RossVeckey Agency) and Omnitrans.

“We are excited and proud to bring the CJUSD College and Career Fair to our community for a second year,” said Superintendent Jerry Almendarez. “Last year’s event was a huge success with more than 3,000 in attendance and we are looking forward to another great event where our students can get the information they need to plan for the future.”

“The Mayor and council are excited to partner with CJUSD for the Second Annual College and Career Fair,” added Colton Mayor Richard De La Rosa. “We are always committed to assisting the district’s students with a jump start to higher education opportunities.”

The fair will provide students and families a “one-stop shop” where they can meet representatives from four-year colleges and universities, community colleges and technical/trade schools as well as business professionals who will be on hand to discuss a wide variety of career pathways. Workshops also will be presented to help students to plan for the future.

New this year will be a “STEAM” activity center where younger students can explore hands-on science, technology, engineering, art and math activities.

A limited number of booths are still available at no charge. Please note that all presenters must showcase materials that are appropriate for school-aged children and intended to help them learn more about possible career and college choices. The district reserves the right to decline vendors or materials if they are deemed inappropriate or in violation of board policies.
