BGCTC’s Great Futures Fair (GFF) seeks to connect passion with purpose. Teens and young adults from across the Twin Cities will have the opportunity to meet with local corporations, businesses, colleges, tech schools, and trade unions as they begin to plan their post-secondary paths. Attendees, representing the next generation of the workforce, will have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of hands-on, interactive opportunities with top Minnesota employers and education institutions.
