Connecting businesses and students

The Chamber has partnered with local school districts to connect students with learning opportunities (guest speakers, internships, apprenticeships) from nearby businesses. This is intended to cultivate an environment where the business community helps nurture our future workforce.

Get involved

We are asking employers to identify ways they can help local middle and high school students. Examples include being a guest speaker for a middle or high school class and offering internships or apprenticeships. Email kteo [at] for more information.
