Education & Workforce Development

Education is the foundation for the success of our future workforce. Throughout the nation, too many students are graduating from high school unprepared for the real-life demands of the workplace and college. That’s why the Salem Chamber is dedicated to helping students prepare for life outside the classroom.

Whether a student plans to go on to attend college or go straight into the workforce, students need to have the necessary skills to excel in the future. By connecting with employers, students gain a better understanding of the importance of workforce skills and attitudes and begin to develop a vision of their future.

Our partnerships between the business community and our school district help students connect classroom learning with the expectations of the workplace. By investing in our future workforce, we build a stronger economy for our region for generations to come.
