Event description
Greenhouse Academy is inviting leaders of business and education to participate in its first annual youth job fair!

About this Event

Mike and Jeff Crosby of Greenhouse Academy are pleased to announce that planning has begun on what they hope will be the first of many youth job fairs at their 60,000 square foot facility in East London.

The event is aimed at connecting companies and employment candidates and will only be a success with the support of the greater business community and education partners.

The Sowing the Seeds Youth Job Expo is seeking interested parties to participate on multiple levels in order to provide 1,000 students with access to business, industry and educational opportunities that can drive the future of the greater London labour pool. With so many businesses commenting on the difficulties they experience in attracting and retaining skilled labour, Sowing the Seeds will create awareness for both youth and employers around the opportunities and career possibilities for high school students and graduates.

The Youth Job Expo is expecting to attract over 40 vendors to the greenhouse and is not restricted to the horticultural segment, rather, focused on informing and inspiring students in all segments of business and education.

“This Job Fair is based on the same principles as our regular GHA Program; to enlighten youth in the areas of financial literacy, workplace readiness and skills development. We deliver hands-on training and education based on practical applications of business, social enterprise, and environmental stewardship. We feel that’s a strong foundation for any employee with a career ahead of them and qualities that any employer would appreciate and seek out.” says Jeff Crosby.

Catering, volunteers and event management will be provided by GHA, as well as an integrated marketing mix to stimulate social and media involvement. The two-day event is scheduled for May 15th/16th, 2019.
