Field Trip

How do stakeholders from education, community organizations, business and industry, and government sectors come together to meet the needs of job seekers and employers? It is about partnerships! This session will highlight the collaborative connections through an interactive tour of the Bay-Arenac Intermediate School District (BAISD) Career Center. You will hear a brief overview of Career and Technical Education (CTE) and how it fits into the talent pipeline. Partnerships and initiatives within our region will be highlighted (MiCareerQuest). Participants will explore interactive displays, provided by business and industry, which are used to introduce students to high demand industries in our region. They will engage in conversations with students and hear about their school, work experiences, and plans for the future. Next, there will be small group discussions of the takeaways and questions that came up during the session, and finally groups will share out and ask questions of the educators, community organization leaders, and business and industry leaders.
