About this Event

The Alternative Learning Center will be hosting a “ College & Career Fair” on Wednesday, October 16, 2019. We invite you to be a part of this opportunity to provide information regarding college and career readiness to our students, grades 8 through 12. Location: The event will be held in our Alternative Learning Center, with 30 Austin vendors arriving at 12:30 pm to set up booths. Refreshments will be provided on site for all of our great vendors. Alternative Learning Center Address: 4900 Gonzales Street Austin, TX 78702

Event purpose: For businesses to present career paths to our ALC high school students, as well as offering immediate employment opportunities. The aim is to help students gain awareness of a variety of college and career opportunities in the community by connecting with them directly at the event.

Audience: Students who attend ALC have been removed from their home campus for a short or long term requirement based on the disciplinary action. Students would benefit from knowing alternative paths to careers (college and non-college bound students).

Table Set Up: We ask that each presenter provide a display of your respective college, university, career, business, or organization – which can include pamphlets, handouts, freebies, or giveaways for students in attendance. We encourage you to dialogue with our students about your professional journey and education background, emphasizing how skills in human relations have impacted your journey. Please note: Students will be rotating through the gym in small groups of 5 with teacher supervision – there are 5 minutes within each rotation to speak with each group.
