On Sept. 22, 2012, the city of Temecula, the business community, local school districts, colleges and universities will join forces in sponsoring the Fourth Annual Temecula Valley College and Vocational Invitational held at the Promenade Regional Mall in Temecula. The event attracts thousands of prospective students and their families throughout Riverside County. Representatives from more than 170 colleges, military academies, as well as vocational and trade schools will be on hand to introduce their schools, provide information and answer any questions.
At last year’s event, it was truly apparent that the event is a resounding success. The overall benefits of this event are immeasurable. Potential students and their families have an opportunity to gather information from schools of interest. Many families were able to participate in this event together. Some were interested in information for the very near future, and others were inquiring in hopes of preparing an education plan for the future.
More than 150 higher education providers were present at one location at the same time in a local, convenient and inviting environment. Those represented were excited to be in Temecula and desired to help provide information for higher learning and education. The local community partnership involving the city of Temecula, nearby school districts and the business community together supported the vision of bringing valuable information regarding higher education, learning and opportunity to our community. This event was a direct outcome of the goals and objectives set forth in the Youth Master Plan that was approved by the city of Temecula. The Youth Master Plan is a comprehensive strategic plan that is designed to identify and address the needs of young people.
