The KidsMatter Job Fair was a huge success!

Approximately 1,500 youth and parents flowed through the doors of Merner Field House on March 21st.

Thirty-six businesses offered over 1,650 job opportunities to an eager crowd of students. Hundreds of young people filled out applications in our Application Station area, where KidsMatter volunteers, the U.S. Department of Labor employees, and business representatives answered questions and assisted students and parents who inquired about everything from work permits to interviews. AMC Naperville, McDonalds, Illinois Energy Windows & Siding, Cookie Dough Creations, Home Depot, Goodwill, Culvers, Lowe’s, Noodles & Company, Chicagoland Pool Management, as well as the other businesses in attendance, secured the majority of their staff for the upcoming summer months.
