Saturday Specials are engaging events, held twice a year, to inform neighbors about opportunities, make valuable connections, and provide practical information useful in everyday life. Saturday Specials are held at the TBAISD Career-Tech Center located at 880 Parsons Road in Traverse City and are sponsored by Traverse Bay PRI. Free lunch and free daycare are provided.
Saturday Specials typically have a timely theme and offer practical, free workshops such as: financial planning, employment, how to shop smart, free tax preparation, saving money in food preparation, and more! Various activities are often included at agency booths which are available to help neighbors during their time at the Saturday Special.
