The Careers in My Community project is designed allowing individuals to thoroughly and thoughtfully plan and explore the career opportunities in our region, as well as connecting them with the local skills partners for training and credentialing for local jobs.  Connecting business and industry partners with education partners will provide a sustainable, trained workforce meeting the needs of the changing region.  We will train and retain our local talent to positively impact the climate and culture of our communities.  “Building Futures—Changing Lives” will be the outcome for the next generations to call our region “home”.

The Careers in My Community project targets students (elementary through college), parents, the unemployed, underemployed, and individuals who will relocate as a result of the changing economic climate in the region. The implementation of the project is an ongoing process. It will be done locally using Career Pathways Graduation Coaches, Career Pathways Specialists, Career Pathways Internship Coordinators, Career Pathways Industry Coordinators, Career Pathways Student Readiness Collaborative Mentors, and business leaders. The project will benefit various partners (students and adults) from, but not limited to, local business and industry, manufacturing, K-12 school districts, career centers, Ohio Training Centers, institutions of higher education and local governmental agencies.  All will stay connected through the Careers in My Community website (www.careersinmycommunity.org).

The goal of the Careers in My Community project is to assist with:

  • Developing and sustaining a “SKILL READY” workforce in our region to fill the 101,000 jobs that are predicted in the Shale Crescent by 2025.
  • Develop and retain local talent in our southeast region.
  • Connect LOCAL business partners and LOCAL skills partners with every student and adult in the region in order that each lands a J O B here!
