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.
BGCTC’s Great Futures Fair is part of BGCTC’s Teen Pathways program, an inclusive model designed to prepare ALL youth for success post-graduation. Key components of Teen Pathways include social/emotional learning (SEL) integration, alignment of each participant’s aptitude and interest to a chosen post-secondary option, and a comprehensive multi-year strategy to engage youth in career exploration and teach real-world job skills that are transferable to the current job market.
