The Tucson Indian Center host special events to honor elders and organizes holiday events to provide food and toys for needy families. Staff organizes fairs, gatherings and conferences in order to bring the American Indian Community together around issues and to celebrate culture.
Our job fair helps local companies connect with Native Americans throughout our community. Tucson Indian Center Annual Job Fair began in 1990 with 150 job-seekers and a dozen or so employers. In 2006, the Tucson Indian Center partnered with Tucson Newspapers Inc (TNI) and changed the name to Annual CareerBuilder Diversity Career Fair. In 2007, over 99 employers participated and an estimate of 2,500 people attended this annual event.
