Residents are invited to a jobs fair, part of the ‘Young and Safe Expo’ this Saturday in Norwood at the Elmgreen School, to help people make the most of opportunities locally.
The Young and Safe Expo has been organised by the Crystal Palace Community Development Trust, with support from the council, to provide opportunities for young people to find out what’s going on their area in a fun and friendly way, and also to get involved locally, for example in volunteering.
The Young and Safe Expo will include a jobs fair, which is designed to help local people of all ages into employment, training, education and volunteering. There will be a list of up to the minute jobs on offer, and application forms for them that people can fill in on the spot. There will be lots of help and information available from a variety of local providers.
Organisations on hand to offer information and advice will include Lambeth College, NACRO, Connexions Service, LVAC’s Lambeth Volunteering Centre, Job Centre Plus, Waterloo Job Shop and the IAG (the council’s Information and Guidance service).
Young people will be able to visit a thriving marketplace of stalls offering information, demonstrations and workshops to promote the wealth of local services and activities for young people. Various service providers and council departments will be represented alongside local voluntary and community groups, the police and Lambeth NHS.
There will also be a talent showcase event, with dance, singing and drumming performances from local young people.
People of all ages are welcome at the event, at the Elmgreen School, Elmcourt Road, SE27 9BZ, Saturday 27 February from 11am to 5pm.
