The College of Health and Human Services held its “iFuture: You Belong at Fresno State” events on Oct. 28 at the San Joaquin Sports Complex and on Oct. 31 at the Maxie Parks Community Center. Presented by Fresno State and local Fresno community organizations as part of a series of outreach events, the event is designed to educate youth about college.

The goal of this annual event is to provide early outreach to young students and expose them to information about career options in the health and human services field. Fresno State CHHS students provided demonstrations and activities related to the various career choices. Career counselors from the University provided parents with helpful strategies to navigate the steps toward higher education for their children.

Thank you to our sponsors, including Applebees Grill & Bar (Clovis), SPARCI, the West Fresno Family Resource Center and Fresno State’s Advising and Career Development Center, University Outreach Services and Career Development Center.

The event was also supported by the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Programs.
