The Merrill Chamber has teamed up with Centergy along with Adams County, North Wood County, Portage County, Marathon County and South Wood County to create Inspire Central Wisconsin. We have teamed up with the local schools and have gotten on board with Career Cruising program. Career Cruising is a program that school provide for students of what jobs are available in the community with businesses that have registered with Inspire.
Inspire helps by using the Career Cruising platform that is used in many schools, to help students explore their options, interests and aspirations through a variety of activities. The Inspire program then provides a platform that engages community volunteers that act as mentors, business owners that provide valuable educational and career data. Eventually the object is to add work based learning through career fairs, shadow days, mentoring and apprenticeships. An important fact is that this program can level the playing field by providing people of all backgrounds, in all areas of the state, equal access to mentors and relevant employers.
