“My Future Fest is shaping up to be a fantastic event for local youth aged between 15 and 21,” said ETC CEO Jenny Barnett.

“We are aware that Grafton hasn’t had an event like this for at least 5 years and instead has to bus students to Coffs Harbour to attend career expos. This is no ordinary career expo however with a combined focus on career, training and health issues. There will also be free food and entertainment to make it even more attractive for local youth to attend!”

“ETC is excited to be partnering with local businesses to offer mock job interviews with real employers on the day and our team will also be running resume writing workshops.”

Clarence Valley Mayor Jim Simmons, encouraged the local community to get behind My Future Fest.

“Decisions about your future are always difficult and the more help you can get with that the better,” he said.

“My Future Fest will have the information and staff on hand to make sure people have all the material they need to make informed decisions.”
