Youth Employment Opportunity Fair

The Upper Grand District School Board is pleased to take this opportunity to connect students completing grade 12 to local employers who are currently recruiting for positions that will start when the school year is complete. Employers may be recruiting for summer, part-time, full-time or entry level career opportunities.  


Graduating students will be able to connect with over 40 employers who will be offering positions starting in July 2017 or beyond.  


Our next Youth Employment Opportunity Fair is scheduled for Wednesday, May 24th, 2017, from 12:00PM - 4:00PM.
