Job Fair

Held in early April every year at CMCC. We bring over 50 employers and educational opportunities together for job seekers.

 

Junior Achievement

The Junior Achievement programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs, which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities. The LA Metro Chamber organizes classrooms and volunteers to carry out these programs.
