Cultivating Relationships that Work
A Bridge between area schools and the business community
The Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce created the Business and Education Advancement Initiative with the vision to enhance the economic well-being of our membership by mobilizing and supporting synergistic relationships between business and education and fostering the creation of innovative solutions that bridge the needs of our Employers, Students and our Community.
We aim to advance the creation of a talented and competitive future workforce for our employers by helping to align educational experiences with the skills necessary for today’s labor market.
Our program allows students to gain firsthand knowledge of occupational opportunities available to them upon graduation through collaborative projects with our members including job shadowing, internships, speaking engagements, facility tours and other work-based learning experiences. Our hope is that through these experiences, clear career pathways will be discovered allowing for the most efficient use of resources in the pursuit of a successful future.
