Final recruitment for positions at Turner Field will be held March 19 in the South Fulton Service Center

Fulton County District 6 Commissioner Emma I. Darnell’s Taskforce on Children and Youth is partnering with My Brother’s Keeper Fulton County (MBKFC) and Juma Ventures to provide employment opportunities for young adults ages 18-21.  Interested residents are urged to register for a final opportunity to participate in a Pre-employment and Application Completion Session Saturday, March 19, 2016.  The session will be held in the South Fulton Service Center, 5600 Stonewall Tell Road, SW Atlanta, GA 30349 from 11am – 3pm.  Applicants must pre-register to participate in the pre-employment and application session.

The recruitment is a collaborative effort among the Fulton County Aging and Youth Services Department, Juma Ventures and My Brother’s Keeper Fulton County Task Force.  MBKFC is an initiative of Chairman John H. Eaves Ph.D., District 7 and Commissioner Joan P. Garner, District 4.

The MBKFC Task Force and Commissioner Darnell’s Task Force on Children and Youth are assisting Juma Ventures  in recruiting young adults for employment at Turner Field’s Social Enterprise stands during the 2016 Atlanta Braves season, the final season for the team in the facility.   The event serves as another dress rehearsal prior to the actual interviews that will also be held March 19. Interested applicants can register by visitingCommissioner Emma I.

Juma strives to break the cycle of poverty by paving the way to work, education and financial capability for the most economically challenged and disadvantaged youth in America.  Participants will attend breakout sessions as a preview to the interview.  Dress rehearsal sessions will be conducted by MBKFC Taskforce Members and other professionals in the areas of interviewing in a group setting, accurately completing an application, proper attire andmock interviews.  Candidates will be able to complete an application packet and interview for one of the available positions (food prep, cashier or stand manager).  Employment offers will be based on the results of background checks and will be extended during the week of March 21-25, 2016.

Young adults ages 18-21 are the only candidates Juma is seeking to employ at this time.
