The Door County Economic Development Corporation hopes connecting area students with employers early and often will help keep them locally after they graduate with some new initiatives. With its Door County Business and Education Partnership, the DCEDC has developed Inspire Door County, which allows students to find out about the career that is right for them and where in Door County they could pursue those dreams. The DCEDC is also planning its own manufacturing day in October to highlight area companies for students and their families. Executive Director Caleb Frostman says they have had tremendous support from schools and area businesses.
Frostman also says the High School Home Construction program will continue this coming fall to show career options in that field after taking a hiatus due to the housing market.
Listen to more about what the DCEDC is doing to help youth in the area learn about the employment opportunities in Door County.
