The Muskogee Youth Agency Connection is hosting a family fun fest on Saturday at the Muskogee Civic Center.
The event, which is free, runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is designed to help attendees find careers, education and other options for youths from 16 to 25. Armed services recruiters, workforce representatives, information on GED programs, temp agencies and local employers will all be there to help young people navigate the sometimes-complicated process of getting their lives on track.
In addition, the first 400 attendees will receive a free t-shirt. The event will also have free food, games and giveaways, which include bicycles, gift cards and gift bags.
The Muskogee Fire Department will also be on hand to teach proper car seat installation, the police department will offer free child fingerprints and healthcare providers will also be on hand.
The Muskogee Youth Agency Connection promotes positive youth development by gathering multiple community partners to serve adolescents and young adults.
