Share information about your profession or company with kids from our Dogwood Campus
The annual Career Fair at the Youth Villages Dogwood Campus in October is the perfect opportunity to come out and spend time with the kids as well as talk about goal setting and life long ambitions.
You can share information about your profession and discuss potential openings within your company. We encourage anyone that is interested to take part in the event. Participation is free of charge and lunch is provided.
Youth in attendance will be between 8 and 18. Each company will be provided with an eight-foot table and two chairs. Feel free to bring brochures, props, displays and handouts to better engage the kids.
In the past, we've hosted volunteer participants from A.C.H. Foods, American Eagle, BancorpSouth, Comtrak, FedEx Express, Hyatt Place, International Paper, Magna, Methodist North Hospital, NexAir, Southwest Tennessee Community College, U.S. Army, and Youth Villages.
Youth Villages is a private nonprofit organization
dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally
troubled children and their families live successfully.
We help more than 22,000 children and families each year
from more than 20 states and Washington, D.C. Our
Evidentiary Family Restoration™ approach involves
intensive work with the child and family, a focus on
measuring outcomes, keeping children in the community whenever
safely possible, and providing accountability to families and
funders. The EFR approach produces lasting success for children
with success rates twice that of traditional services at one-third
the cost of traditional care.
