Leading CareerForce Partner Ramsey County Workforce Solutions hosted the second annual Youth Job & Resource Fair at the Maplewood Mall this past Saturday, April 20. With planning support from Marnita’s Table and the Suburban Ramsey Family Collaborative, the event featured 13 employers and five resource partners for youth and families. The event served at least 124 youth and young adults. Most of the teens were ages 14 through 16. Younger children were also invited to attend and they were able to get creative at a craft table, get fancy with glitter tattoos and get cuddly with Huxley the therapy dog!
