The annual event will be held on Saturday, May 21, 2022.
Fulton County District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. and City of South Fulton District 3 Councilwoman Helen Willis will once again co-host a Summer Teen Hiring Fair.

During the fair, teen job seekers will get to meet with potential employers to talk about opportunities in their community. Local human resources professionals will also be available to provide information on job opportunities and to answer questions. Representatives from the Fulton County Board of Health will also be on site to provide walk-up COVID-19 vaccinations and to schedule vaccination appointments.
“We are excited to host this teen hiring fair again so that our South Fulton youth will have job opportunities,” said District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr. “Last year over 200 youth attended, and over 50 received jobs on the spot. This year, we look forward to having even more opportunities and resources available for our teens.”
