Today's students are tomorrow's business leaders. Our Education and Workforce department works to bridge the gap between the business and education sectors to ensure that your business and our community have a highly educated, available, and technically skilled workforce.
Are you passionate about our kids, their future, education, and our workforce? We invite you to get involved today.

About GSI’s Education & Workforce Program
One of the key elements to a successful business and a thriving regional economy is talent – a workforce with the skill and background that businesses need to be successful. Building the talent pipeline is about more than putting youth through our early learning, K-12 and higher education institutions. It's about creating partnerships between business and education. GSI works to bring educators and employers together for the benefit of students and businesses, stimulating our economy and quality of life. Educators get a better understanding of the skills our businesses and industries need to be competitive, and businesses provide experiences that show our educators and students real-life business applications.
