The Grandville Jenison Chamber is partnering with local Educators in both Jenison and Grandville Public Schools.  Our hope and desire is to create a unique partnership between local business and educational leaders to build a collaborative foundation for local students to explore numerous career pathways that lead to personal growth and local employment.



​Why is it a priority of the Grandville Jenison Chamber to Develop and Nurture Partnerships between Educators and Businesses? 
  • Develop a positive relationship between the school and community businesses.
  • Provide opportunities for students to gain knowledge about career paths.
  • Provide the community with graduates who are knowledgeable of the available careers within West Michigan.
  • Provide students with positive role models within our community.

In what way can a business contribute to the partnership?

  • Guest Speaker: Speak to a class on a topic related to an occupation/business to facilitate a connection between curriculum and the world of work.
  • Join students for new 2018/2019 event – Coffee with students.  A one time commitment.
  • Job Shadow/Tours: Allow students to tour the actual workplace.

What is the process for engaging in a partnership?
