BURBANK—The Armenian National Committee of Burbank (ANC Burbank), in partnership with the Confederation of All-Armenian Student Associations (All-ASA), will be hosting a Career and College Fair on Saturday, November the 12th at the Burbank High School on 902 North Third Street. The event will be held on the quad area and will take place from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
“There are so many opportunities for financial aid and internships for students today that are overlooked,” said Armen Abkarian, an ANC Burbank committee member and student at California State University, Northridge. “The ANC Burbank believes that education is the foundation for civic participation and this event will encourage students to pursue all the opportunities higher education has to offer.”
Joining the ANC Burbank are representatives from the partner Armenian college student groups including those from the University of California (UC), Los Angeles, UC Berkley, UC Irvine, the University of Southern California, and Occidental College, who will provide students with information workshops and internship and volunteer opportunities. In addition to this there will also be a workshop from the Burbank Police Department regarding career opportunities and from Mariya Kupchyan, council coordinator to Polytechnic College, about college admissions and applications.
Congressman Adam Schiff, who represents the area in the U.S. House of Representatives will also join the students for the fair.
The event is free. There will be DJ entertainment as well as refreshments and door prizes to all comers. Representatives from the Armenian Youth Federation and Armenian Relief Society will also have booths for students to learn about community service opportunities through these organizations.
The Confederation of the All-Armenian Student Association (All-ASA) promotes communication between its Constituent Organizations and provides forums, through which the organizations may announce events, publicize activities, share ideas regarding the Armenian college student community, and facilitate the formulation of All-ASA programs.
The Armenian National Committee of Burbank advances the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the area’s Armenian American community and promotes increased Armenian American civic participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.
