One of our important missions is to develop a quality workforce. The best place to start is in the schools by providing youth with career advice that will best fit their individual personality and abilities. With college drop-out rates climbing and student debt mounting, sending our youth into the workforce without the best career and training choices only results in lost time and money.
We are here to partner with schools in our region to share the expertise of our established workforce development system with students to ensure they have the opportunity to make informed educational decisions along with gaining an understanding of what employers expect of them. Through the Northeast Career Ed Venture’s MENU OF FREE SERVICES, the business community has the opportunity to become involved with their local school, influence the future workforce, share their business expertise and give back to the community.

Construct Tomorrow Held on the Iron Range
By Heath Boe, Northeast Minnesota Office of Job Training
The very first Iron Range Construct Tomorrow event was held on October 19, 2016, at the Range Regional Civic Center in Eveleth, MN. Construct Tomorrow is a hands-on event for high school students to introduce them to the skilled trades. Trade unions from the skilled trades bring various activities that allow the students to experience the work the skilled trades do, as well as interact with skilled trades’ representatives. This interaction helps the students visualize themselves doing this type of work as a career. It also naturally encourages dialog about all aspects of this type of career; what training or schooling is required, how much does the job pay, and what is a typical day for that occupation.
