Faribault Excellence in Career and Workforce Education VISTA

Posted: 10/11/2020

The Faribault Chamber works to strengthen and promote area business members by building community alliances and working as business advocates, making Faribault an even greater place to visit work and live. The Vision Task Force, a committee of the Chamber- has identified excellence in education as a priority. The VISTA will be working on pathways to success for Faribault students, who are often of minority status and/or in a lower socio-economic standing, to assist in placing those students in job shadowing, on-the-job experiences and interactive mentorships in a variety of careers in our community, which will give them connections, training, and resources to find success. The focus will be on students in 10-12 grade. The VISTA member will be working with education and workforce development initiatives, including working with a student portal for opportunities, and assisting in developing job shadowing, on-the-job experiences and interactive mentorships in a variety of careers in our community. The VISTA will direct engagement with a career portal, workforce development, and pathways for success for area students that also is supported by area industry. Add value with primary coordinating activities for other Vision Task Force initiatives.
