      AACF's 5th Annual Job Fair

      The African American Christian Foundation (AACF), in partnership with the Oak Park Township will be hosting our 5th annual job fair for all ages - 16 and above - regardless of creed, race or religion on Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 10AM to 2PM. This much anticipated job fair will be held in the ballroom of The Nineteenth Century Club at 178 Forest Avenue in Oak Park, IL.

      Employers will be onsite to provide information and answer questions about their organization. Some will be accepting applications on the spot, others will be scheduling interviews, and many will be offering instructions on their online application process. You do not want to miss this once-a-year occasion to speak directly with recruiters and hiring managers of well-known, local corporations. Bring your most recently updated resume and be prepared to sell your best self in the industry you most desire.

      Although this hiring fair is open to the public at large of any age, one of AACF’s day-to-day and prime objectives is to help fight youth joblessness between the ages of 16 and 24. “Joblessness among young people is tied to the emptying out of jobs from neighborhoods,” (Hinz, 2017). AACF is fighting back to help bring to and keep economic resources in our communities. This will ultimately assist in reducing crime and providing self-sufficiency to youthful participants. There are a staggering number of young adults without jobs who are more than eager, capable and qualified residents in the west suburban, Chicago and Chicagoland areas and are actively and diligently, but unsuccessfully seeking gainful employment. This job fair will afford youth and adults, alike, the opportunity to pursue and apply for the personally gratifying and financially rewarding new career of your choosing. We look forward to meeting you at The Nineteenth Century Club on Thursday, October 19, 2017 between 10AM and 2PM.

      If you are unable to attend, feel free to visit us online at or in our Oak Park office at 6707 West North Avenue, Monday through Friday during regular business hours.
