Did you know that the students at Mitchell Middle School are working in CAD Programming? Or that the students at Burlington High School are learning anatomy and physiology from staff at Aurora Health Care? As employment needs and forecasts of workforce shortages increase for Racine County employers, our business community is looking for more ways to connect with the next generation of our workforce before they enter the workforce. Career Connect will be a tool to help bridge the gap between the business community and Racine County students while they are developing the skills they will carry into their careers. For more information on how your business can utilize Career Connect, please contact John Siegert at John.Siegert@goracine.org.
