Creating Workforce of The Future
Thursday, June 02, 2022
Beginning in 2021 our Chamber and Greater Hutch team had the distinct honor to help create and coordinate the new Career Quest program which exposed local students to careers at nearly 20 business across the region. Along with co-hosting the 2nd annual Signing Day event, in cooperation with HCC and HCTEA, to honor the commitment that young people in our community are making to invest in their futures through technical training and career path readiness. It took many businesses, volunteers, educators, and staff to make these programs possible. We hope you will say thank you to the many businesses who opened their doors to host young people from McCandless and Wiley Elementary Schools for Career Quest this semester, and we hope you’ll also consider becoming either a sponsor or a host for this great program as we continue to scale it bigger in the coming years. This is only possible because of the support of each of our Reno Rising investors and businesses who were willing to take time from their own busy schedules to be mentors. Thank you to Dillons, a Reno Rising investor, and supporter of Career Quest for producing this great video highlighting the visit to Dillons.
