The Grandville Jenison Chamber is partnering with local Educators in both Jenison and Grandville Public Schools. Our hope and desire is to create a unique partnership between local business and educational leaders to build a collaborative foundation for local students to explore numerous career pathways that lead to personal growth and local employment.
Why is it a priority of the Grandville Jenison Chamber to Develop and Nurture Partnerships between Educators and Businesses?
Develop a positive relationship between the school and community businesses.
Provide opportunities for students to gain knowledge about career paths.
Provide the community with graduates who are knowledgeable of the available careers within West Michigan.
Provide students with positive role models within our community.
In what way can a business contribute to the partnership?
Guest Speaker: Speak to a class on a topic related to an occupation/business to facilitate a connection between curriculum and the world of work.
Join students for a Coffee with students event. A one time commitment.
Job Shadow/Tours: Allow students to tour the actual workplace.
