West Orange Chamber of Commerce: November Updates & Events

OCPS Teach-In

Here in Orange County, workforce development is an increasingly important topic. The economy is thriving and businesses continue to flock to the Orlando area. But are we, as a community, doing enough to provide qualified employees to fill these jobs?

On Nov. 14, business leaders have the opportunity to reach students directly via the annual OCPS Teach-In program. Participants can take advantage of this unique opportunity to become a teacher for the hour, showcasing some of the qualities they are looking for in their next great employee while inspiring students and getting them to start thinking about their next steps after school.

You can read a book; share an educational experience about your career; or talk about a favorite vacation, hobby or how a special teacher touched your life. Whatever your skills, no matter your topic, there is a classroom of students waiting to hear from you! Learn more about this valuable program at www.foundationforocps.org.
