Join the workforce solution to helping students launch careers!
The 7 Rivers Alliance, in partnership with the WEDC, Western Wisconsin Workforce Board, TUMMA and CESA #4, has launched an online career planning tool for students in Jackson County. In 2018, this tool will be available to all school districts in the 7 Rivers Region.
The 7 Rivers Alliance is beyond excited to begin implementing Inspire Wisconsin, an online application supporting students and guiding them into the first steps of their professional career. Inspire Wisconsin’s mission is to develop and disseminate an organized, integrated community-development platform for life-long career planning and learning which creates bridges between employers, educators and students and connects students and adult job seekers with work-based learning experiences and job opportunities.
In Wisconsin there are nearly 300 middle and high school locations using the Inspire Wisconsin program which reaches over 120,000 users. The 7 Rivers Alliance has started this program in Jackson County and then will expand these services into Iowa and Minnesota. You and your organization can make a lasting impact on students and career seekers trying to discover their future career path!
