Find Your Inspiration event on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018
Find Your Inspiration is a career exploration experience for nearly 4,000 eighth grade students from across Greater Green Bay developed by the Greater Green Bay Chamber Partners in Education in response to employers’ need for future talent. Find Your Inspiration allows students 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.
Additionally, teachers and counselors attend the event to learn about Greater Green Bay careers, identify connections to their curriculum, and continue career education throughout the year with their students. Career exploration lessons and opportunities to engage with exhibitors via the FYI mobile app support the students’ experience by guiding their exploration prior to the event.
New this year: Community Preview Night on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018
Community Preview Night is being hosted the evening prior to the eighth grade students attending the event with their schools. We invite the entire community, parents, educators and young professionals to explore more than 60 area businesses as they exhibit, sharing their insights and offering engaging activities to showcase careers you many not think about or realize exist! Preview night is open to families, ALL students and our community.
Also, at the Community Preview Night, Financing College Workshops will take place every half hour. These workshops will assist families with high school and/or middle school students in preparing for the financial responsibilities of schooling beyond graduation. Workshops are sponsored by the Greater Green Bay Chamber's Partners In Education in partnership with Wells Fargo, Scholarship Inc. and the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation.
Exhibitors will be set up during this time for parents, teachers and community members to preview the Find Your Inspiration event before students attend with their schools
Nearly 4,000 area 8th grade students from over 15 area school districts will attend Find Your Inspiration to experience careers from every industry in an engaging format
