Great Futures Fair Connects Passion with Purpose

Our inaugural Great Futures Workforce Fair was held on April 2 at our Jerry Gamble Club, and we could not have been happier with the turnout! More than 200 Twin Cities teens had the opportunity to engage with 45 local businesses, colleges, and organizations.

Thank you to the vendors, partner organizations, and staff who came together to make this event possible, and especially to our sponsors--Best Buy, UnitedHealth Group, SearchWide Global, Bremer Bank, Koch Companies, and Great Lakes Coca-Cola Bottling--who supported our big idea from the very beginning.
