The Early Bird Gets The Worm
Starting early as elementary school, we’ve offered opportunities for business introductions through classroom projects and student competitions.
As students advance through middle and high school, we provide educator experiences, student career fairs, job-shadowing opportunities, work-based learning programs, and more.
Why? Because students, which are your future workforce, can’t plan to be logistics managers, quality-control technicians, civil engineers or anything else if they’ve never heard of it.
