Fueling the talent pipeline 

One of the most universally encountered challenges businesses face is finding and keeping a workforce with the skills necessary for open positions. But what if - through unique and committed partnerships - a community was able to cultivate its own workforce by connecting students with opportunities to better understand which career path best meets their talents and interests?

Macomb County’s Fueling the Talent Pipeline initiative does just that. The program connects employers with educators to provide meaningful career exploration activities for students and to prepare the next generation of our workforce for the interesting and well-paying jobs offered by local companies. 

Our approach is collaborative and community-driven. We meet with area employers to understand their workforce challenges and then partner them with schools that offer related career training. Through these partnerships, students gain greater insight as to how their interests and abilities, combined with the appropriate credentials, lead to rewarding careers.  

As a result, students are better prepared to graduate from high school with a plan to pursue additional education or to launch a career in a high-demand field.  

We are currently seeking local employers who are ready to invest in our future workforce. There are many ways to get involved. Explore the links below to learn more OR complete this online form, and someone will be in touch.
