Washington, PA — Community Action Southwest and Washington High School are partnering to host a Community Connections Fair on Monday, March 24th. Nineteen local organizations will be on-hand to provide students and community members with information regarding health and education resources available to members of the community, including information on post-secondary schools and student loans, job training programs, adult education, and health and wellness programs. Affordable Care Act Certified Application Counselors will also be present to provide information and assistance regarding the new healthcare law.

Students will attend the event from noon until 3 p.m. The event will be open to the public from 3:30pm-5:30pm in the gymnasium of Washington High School, 201 Allison Avenue in Washington, PA.

The Community Connections Fair is part of Community Action Southwest’s Post-secondary Transitions Program funded in-part by the United Way of Washington County. The program is designed to assist area residents to find the right post-secondary education opportunity, to complete scholarship and financial aid paperwork and to build strong community relationships with educational institutions in order to help as many lower-income individuals to obtain post-secondary degrees and certificates.
