Why Your Future Greater Green Bay?
Your Future, developed through the Fox Cities Chamber, is an online platform which streamlines connections, communication and collaboration among Students, Educators and Business Professionals in order to develop a thriving workforce. The website promotes career-based learning opportunities which provide a continuum of activities in and outside the classroom for Students to expand their self-awareness, bring relevance to education and enhance their academic and career plans.
The Greater Green Bay Chamber’s mission is to strengthen member businesses through enhancing economic and workforce development, resulting in improved quality of life in our community and region.
To that end, the Chamber established Partners in Education (PIE), in 1992 to connect businesses, area schools, post-secondary institutions and community organizations. Its objective: to assist all students in developing the skills necessary for successful transition from school to an eventual career involving lifelong learning.
