Currently 88 educators are signed up to participate in the 11th Annual Great Lakes Bay Region Summer Institute from June 23rd through the 26th. Forty-two of these educators are from the Bay Area. The workshop is an opportunity for area educators to meet with local employers from different industry sectors in the Great Lakes Bay Regional. This year's theme is "Choices: Transforming the Future". It is critical that educators know about high wage, high skill, high demand career opportunities in our region and how to assist our students in filling the needs of local employers.
Days two and three of the workshop will include visits to employers in the Great Lakes Bay Region to learn about companies and the positions they will be hiring for.
