Inspire 7 Rivers

The Inspire 7 Rivers initiative aims to help students and job seekers achieve their career goals by facilitating career exploration with real professionals and employers. Inspire 7 Rivers also addresses the community’s workforce development needs by providing employers with a multitude of ways to interact and connect with their future workforce from a young age. It provides powerful tools for students, job seekers, businesses, and educators.

Participation by businesses – in all industries, with all types of jobs throughout the region – is critical to the success of Inspire 7 Rivers for both businesses and students!

Inspire 7 Rivers has launched for  the 2017-2018 school year in school districts within Jackson County and over the next three years the program will expand to include school districts throughout the entire 7 Rivers Region.

“Businesses have told me they want a tool to help connect with high school students to talk about careers,” said Chris Hardie, 7 Rivers Alliance CEO. “Inspire 7 Rivers is that tool. I highly encourage all businesses from large to small to be proactive and take a few minutes to register for this important program.”
