Inspire Madison Region brings together businesses, schools, community organizations and volunteers to create a vibrant workforce in the Greater Madison Region. Connecting with your future workforce through tangible experiences is a great way to build relationships and cultivate student interest in the career fields that are important to your company. It’s also a great way to give young people a sense of what the workplace is like and to get them engaged in their career development. For example, experiences like internships are becoming an important part of resumes when it comes to landing a good job. The earlier students can get those experiences the better. Students from middle school through technical college have access to Inspire so you can interact with students at any place on that continuum.
In Inspire Madison Region’s first year, we facilitated nearly 60 Experiential Learning Activities requested by educators and students and fulfilled by the employers who offered them – everything from guest speakers, career fairs, job shadows, internships and more. With many more schools coming on board with Inspire in the 2016-17 school year, we anticipate seeing many more ELAs being set-up through Inspire.
Here are two ways that you can engage your future workforce by adding ELAs to your profile.
As always, if your company feels at any time that you are at capacity for any of the ELAs you’ve signed up for, you can easily uncheck them from your list and they wont’ show up anymore to students and educators.
Inspire Madison Region is a collaborative effort to help individuals achieve their academic, career and life goals, and to help build a strong workforce throughout Dane, Iowa, Green, Dodge, Jefferson and Sauk Counties. Partnering organizations in Inspire Madison Region are the Madison Region Economic Partnership, the Career Advancement Network, The Wisconsin Education Business Roundtable, Workforce Development Board of South Central Wisconsin, Madison Metropolitan School District, Leadership Greater Madison, as well as leaders in business, community development and several school districts.
Inspire Madison Region is a data-driven initiative that helps build bridges between educators, community organizations and businesses through community forums, focus-groups and strategic planning – and by leveraging powerful community-development technology that serves as a hub for all career-readiness activities in the community. Career development tools and workforce data synchronize in a seamless system where educators, students, parents and job-seekers can connect efficiently as well as effectively around work-based learning and career coaching.
