Kent’s Birch Creek, Valli Kee and Cascade communities hosted a career fair at the Birch Creek Youth Center last Wednesday.
Seahawks tight end Tyrone Swoopes, a special guest, greeted children, briefly talked about his experience as a young NFL player and answered questions before playing basketball with boys and girls.
Representatives from Renton Technical College, Green River College, Amerigroup, Blue Origin, and Communities in Schools of Kent were on hand to answer questions.
There also were prizes, food and games.
“We are very proud and excited to provide the opportunity to partner with these amazing organizations in our region and to educate our youth about opportunities right here in South King County to further their education and future successes,” said Carina Raddatz, director of Development and Community Relations for Kent Youth & Family Services.
