Community Page

At Black River we understand that bringing school and community assets together will help our young people succeed. Below are opportunities that are emailed to the school by outside organizations wishing to keep students in the community informed. Please feel free to see if any of these opportunities would be helpful for your student.

Downtown Holland is hosting our second-ever Job Fair this coming Monday, September 11 from 3:00pm – 7:00pm at the Haworth Inn and Conference Center.  A total of 12 businesses will be in attendance, including a number of retailers and restaurants who have positions for students.  Please share the Job Fair flier with your fellow students and friends.

A BRPS student has been volunteering this summer with the Zeeland Historical Society as a junior docent. She has enjoyed this experience and ZHS has enjoyed having her as a volunteer. ZHS would like to have a few more students train as junior docents. Students should enjoy history and like meeting new people. For more information, please contact Arlene Steenwyk at 616-340-5369 or
