LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Palm Beach State College is collaborating with public and private employers in Palm Beach County for the first Afterschool/Summer Camp Job Fair scheduled for Feb. 7.
Teenagers and adults seeking employment opportunities in afterschool programs and summer camps will have access to more than a dozen employers with over 300 full-time and part-time positions to fill. The job fair will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Feb. 7 at the Public Safety Conference Center on the PBSC Lake Worth campus, 4200 Congress Ave.
PBSC is hosting the event in response to feedback from members of its Afterschool Business Partnership Council who said they need help filling the vacancies. Among the employers are the Town of Jupiter, the School District of Palm Beach County, the city of Boynton Beach and Doodlebugs Children’s Center.
“We’re assisting our community partners meet a need to fill numerous positions while also helping anyone who is looking for employment,” said Luisa Brennan, program director of the Entry level and Afterschool Programs at PBSC.
Palm Beach State College provides the state mandated training required to work in licensed childcare facilities, afterschool programs and summer camps. The training includes two 40-hour introductory child care programs that prepare students to work with children from either birth to five years or school age.
