CAREER DEVELOPMENT FAIR
Career Development Fair
Transitioning from a group home or foster home to living alone can be a challenging experience. Many children don’t understand what is expected of them when they go to find a job for the first time.
We believe that its part of our mission to set these children up for success by helping them prepare for life as an adult. Each year OCJ Kids sponsors a Teen Career Fair, this event is designed to arm our children with the knowledge and confidence they need to step into the world as adults.
Helping Foster Teens living in Group Homes prepare for the the job market.

Youth are amazing! They hope, dream, challenge, learn and lay the groundwork for their futures and ours. The education, experience and family values instilled in a teen will follow them for the rest of their lives. Every day, youth in society are exposed to unhealthy and unstable futures.
OCJ Kids’ mission is to equip foster and at-risk children and youth by providing them tools, resources, and positive role models to succeed and excel in every area of life.
