Join Us!

Join us for the 3rd Annual "Momma I Don't Want to Go to College!" Skills & Trade Career Expo/Job Fair, an event aimed at educating and exposing the community to alternative paths to success that do not require a college degree. Our vendors will provide valuable information on training and certification programs, on-the-job training, skills and trade positions, apprenticeships, and other blue-collar jobs. This year's theme honors the life and legacy of Nipsey Hussle's "Too Big to Fail" and focuses on economic mobility in a post-COVID-19 world.

Resetting Fuse Box

Improve access to livable wage jobs, empowering families to provide for their basic needs such as housing, food, and other necessities.

Provide students who opt out of college with the tools, information, and assistance necessary to access, prepare for, and navigate work-based learning, apprenticeships, paid internships, certification programs, and skills training.
