Bridges Workplace Connection & Career Academies

The Bridges Workplace Connection is coordinated by the Chamber as a link between education and business by providing structure for outcome-based, work-based learning experiences for high school students from 23 area high schools. The Bridges Career Academies offer high school juniors and seniors  the opportunity to explore a career pathway to prepare for their post-secondary education through programs of study taught in their school by high school and college faculty. Work-based learning and an introduction to entrepreneurship is included in all Academies.
