Schools2Skills™ celebrates 10 years of providing students with tours of local businesses
Originating as a way to connect superintendents and teachers with local manufacturers, Schools2Skills™ quickly evolved into a platform for educating students about the career opportunities in manufacturing. Schools2Skills™ gives middle and high school students tours of local manufacturers to see firsthand the innovative and advanced technology available right here in southeast Wisconsin. To date, over 3,600 students have attended Schools2Skills™ Manufacturing and this school year alone there will be a total of 26 tours.
In 2018, Schools2Skills™ Health Care was created to further expand the
offering to students interested in learning more about career pathways available in the health care industry. In its first year, Schools2Skills™ Health Care provided tours of local health care organizations to nearly 300 students.
