FMWF Chamber Foundation to host EDventures in June
The second annual event brings employers and educators together to shape the region’s future workforce
Fargo, N.D. – The Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber Foundation’s (The Foundation) Ignite Initiative is partnering with the Cass County Career and Technical Education Center to host the second annual EDventures on June 26-30.
EDVentures is an opportunity for businesses and educators to collaborate and address the workforce needs of the region. The program allows educators to visit several businesses in the community, where they can observe the work environment, interact with employees, and learn about the educational needs that businesses and industries seek. Employers provide insights into the professional skills and work experiences necessary for a successful career. Teachers take this information back to the classroom, preparing students for their future careers, and helping shape the region's workforce.
“Workforce retention and future-talent development are critical priorities for our community,” said Jenna Mueller, executive director for The Foundation. “EDventures fosters strong relationships between educators and businesses, which creates meaningful experiences for students as they decide what the next chapter of their life will look like.”
Participating organizations are Amazon, Assembly Systems, Border States Electric, Butler Machinery, Bytespeed, Carr’s Tree Service, Clay County, Doosan Bobcat, Farm in the Dell of the Red River Valley, Hector International Airport, Holiday Inn, Legacy Plumbing, MWC Advertising, PRx Performance, and Robert Gibb and Sons.
Educators have the option of enrolling for professional development credit or general participation. Registration is open until June 13 at bit.ly/EDventures23.
Ignite is our workforce initiative that drives success for the region’s business community. Using multiple components, including the Regional Workforce Training System, the Ignite FMWF portal, EDventures, and our Community Concierge Program, Ignite’s main objective is to cultivate a talented workforce that fuels our economy now and in the future. Programs that focus on attraction, acclimation, development, and retention are proven strategies that strengthen and grow communities.
