The community’s men of color are encouraged to attend a Richmond job fair on Monday that will include “hundreds of on-the-spot hiring opportunities,” organizers said.

Community advocate Rodney Alamo Brown alerted us to this opportunity for local men between ages 18 and 29.

The”Invest in Youth: Pathways to Success Boys and Men of Color Career Summit” takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday at the Richmond Mayor’s Office’s Workforce Development Lab at 450 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 300.

At the summit, attendees will be able to interview with employers, connect with community resources and participate in career preparation and leadership development training. One of the event’s main purposes to help job seekers overcome barriers to employment.

“The summit will include a hiring pavilion with on-the-spot interviews, a career expo with professional networking opportunities, interactive skill-building workshops for young adults, a program for CEOs and influencers, and more,” according to My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, the summit’s organizer.
