State Rep. Johanny Cepeda-Freytiz, D-Berks, announced Wednesday that she will be hosting a Youth Resource Fair aimed to help parents and youth find resources, activities and summer employment opportunities.
The fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 20 at Olivet Boys and Girls Club, located at 677 Clinton St., Reading.
“This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about CHIP enrollment, college planning, financial literacy, summer job programs and much more,” Cepeda-Freytiz said.
“As a parent I know firsthand how important it is to provide guidance to the young ones. I want them to take advantage of all great programs available in our community, especially now as summer approaches.”
Cepeda-Freytiz said the event will showcase services and programs offered by a wide range of local organizations. The list of participant organizations includes Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks, Reading Recreation Commission, Berks Career & Technology Center, Reading YMCA and Berks Teens, among many others.
“The fair will highlight summer programming in our community and will be a family-oriented event that will feature more than 24 vendors,” Cepeda-Freytiz said. “I am glad to bring the first of many other fairs that will be targeted to parents and youth of the 129th Legislative District.”
Additionally, Cepeda-Freytiz and her staff will be there to assist with everyone’s state-related questions. For more information, contact Cepeda-Freytiz’s office at 484-577-2756.
