• Partnerships for Education

  • Our Partnerships for Education programs link the needs and resources of businesses with those in our schools.

    • Career Search – High school juniors meet with participating business representatives to explore careers. This is not a job fair, but a way for students to directly talk with those who already work in careers they may be interested in.
       
    • Ready, Set, Get Hired! – Annual program held every February at Davenport University's Midland campus. Volunteers administer mock interviews to high school students to help them get the first-time interview jitters out of the way to prepare them for their first job.
       
    • Reality Store – We host around 10 per school year in both middle and high schools in Midland County. Volunteers work one-on-one with students to teach everyday expenses with a hands-on multi-station budgeting exercise. Click here for a glimpse at how the Reality Store works
