Sponsor Job Fair
AEDC sponsored a Job Fair in downtown Aliquippa in partnership with JTBC and the Salvation Army in August of 2018. Nineteen employers participated and 154 job seekers attended the three-hour event. Information from a follow-up survey of employers showed four persons were hired and six companies reported ongoing interviews with potential candidates from the Job Fair.
AEDC hosted a clergy gathering in July to spread the word about the NPP, the good things underway and the future activities in the community through the NPP. Twenty-six persons representing 15 churches and community ministries attended the event. All were provided printed information to share with their congregations. Those who were unable to attend were mailed or emailed the information.
