First Baptist Church of Clinton is offering a special opportunity to the community next weekend, giving young students the change to meet and greet with a variety of local community members and find some momentum in their career path.
On Saturday, May 30, from 9 a.m.-noon, students ages 10 to 17 can come and meet and learn about jobs and careers.
The Rev. Thomas R. Farrow Jr., Pastor of First Baptist at 900 College St., Clinton, said that he is ready to help students in the community during a telephone interview Thursday.
“We wanted to do an initiative to support and encourage,” Farrow added. “We want (local students) to see that the world is open to them.”
“There are so many things to do and become,” he stated, excitedly. “This will be a platform for talk about different walks of life.”
“We want kids to have a plan and an idea on how to get there,” Farrow detailed. “This is a good initiative for young people in the community.”
For the first 30 minutes there will be a meet and greet time, where kids can take a minute and find out about what careers are out there.
Farrow stressed that there will be all kinds of folks there, from all walks of life, from blue and white collar workers to artists.
After that 30 minute session, there will be two breakout sessions, with speakers on different topics. Following that he said that the church will also be feeding the kids at noon.
“This is going to be a great opportunity for kids in the community,” he said.
