Exhibiting at the Find Your Inspiration event is like no other expo of which your organization has been a part. This event is high-energy, engaging and a career exploration experience for students from across the Greater Green Bay area in response to employers’ need for future talent.

Students are encouraged to explore countless career paths, whether they want to work right after graduation, attend a technical college, go into the military, participate in an apprenticeship program or move on to a four-year degree program or beyond.

  • Help educate students and parents about the careers available in our community.

NEW This Year ...

In order to enhance the eight grade students' career exploration experience, we are looking for businesses in all 16 federally recognized career clusters to host tours for the students.

Ideally each participating facility would host a group of about 40 students interested in your business' respective career cluster in the morning, and then another group in the afternoon.

Keep in mind, your business may fall into multiple career cluster area. The students will attend the Find Your Inspiration event before or after the tour of your facilities.

What does a tour entail?

The students should be able to see your facility in order to get an idea of a true working environment, whether that is a manufacturing floor, massive office space, technology center, innovation area, health care area, etc.

Additionally, it would be helpful for a few of your employees from different departments, and possibly even different career clusters, to chat with the students about their career paths, job requirements and education needed to obtain their roles.

In the past, facility tours have been highly successful and memorable for students if there is an interactive component to the tour as well, such as a hands-on activity, interaction with your materials/machines, etc. The hosting of the students for a tour should be between 1-1.5 hour(s) long.

Optional lunch space

Also, it would be helpful if facilities can support space for the students to eat lunch while at your business. Lunches may be brought in by the students, but if a business wanted to generously provide the lunch for the students, that would be ideal, as some students will not be able to afford a lunch away from school. However, providing space and the lunch are completely optional and should not deter any facility from wanting to facilitate a tour.

Contact us for more details or to register to become a tour host facility.
