South-side apprenticeship fair brings in recruiters

FORT WAYNE – An apprenticeship fair is targeting the city’s south side in an attempt to make sure opportunities at high-paying jobs are offered to all.

The event is from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and is open to the public.

The two-day expo will have more than a dozen recruiters in construction, electrical, plumbing and other trades at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fort Wayne, 2609 Fairfield Ave.

“We’re connecting Hoosiers hungry for good-paying jobs to folks willing to provide the training and skills they need to succeed,” Jack Morris, a Fort Wayne attorney, said in a statement.

He touted the fair Tuesday at the Boys & Girls Clubs. The Democrat will face off against former city Councilwoman Liz Brown in the November general election for the state Senate District 15 seat.

The apprentice program will work in conjunction with Ivy Tech Community College, so participants can earn an associate’s degree without student loans.

“The cost of higher education is pricing some families out of pursuing their dreams,” Morris said.
