Career Fair Team


A group of volunteer speakers from careers, apprenticeship programs, job training, colleges, and nonprofit organizations who are available for middle and high schools in the greater Los Angeles area. They will come out to school career fairs, assemblies, or school meetings to share their expertise and open up the possibilities for youth. They are also available for city and community events and programs. If you want to join this team click here for the application. Contact us to schedule a team visit.

Project Great Futures mission!

Project Great Futures works to provide Southern California youth with information about alternatives to military enlistment. We look for and promote programs and services which support, affirm, and encourage young people to fulfill their dreams. Our goal is to support students to think critically, research the options, raise their expectations, and to empower students to make up their own minds about their future.

Project Great Futures is about getting information to as many young people as possible, to help them make informed, realistic decisions that will let them achieve their dreams and build great futures.

Opportunities We Offer

Youth have heard and even believed that"If you're not rich, your options after high school (or even college) are Wal-Mart, prison, or the military." Project Great Futures seeks to expose this myth for what it is and whom it benefits. It challenges young people to expect the most and the best in themselves, and supports them in the process of exploring the options. We've researched the opportunities in southern California, as well as some national and international programs, and found many excellent ones!

There are so many opportunities young people need to know about:

  • Opportunities for affordable, attainable education.
  • Opportunities to develop skills and interests leading to well-paid, rewarding careers.
  • Opportunities to develop as leaders and activists to make their communities, and the world, a better place.
  • Opportunities to get help and guidance in figuring out who they are, how to handle problems and conflicts, and what they want out of life.
