Please join us for our first annual GrowCB Plaque Celebration. At this celebration, you will hear from Program Partners on how your business can get involved and celebrate our business partners participating in the program.
GrowCB is a program of the Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce. GrowCB is intended to be a conduit and platform for youth-business partnerships. The program will be an ongoing program in which businesses provide work-based experiences directly to area students. The purpose of such a program is to help young people appreciate the importance of quality education and how it relates to opportunities in the workforce. Students will also explore the local workforce while continuing to focus on their education. The program will require a mutual commitment from the chamber, businesses, students, student program, and area schools, who will work together to provide career awareness, exploration, and experience opportunities.
Each partnership is unique in that there is not a set curriculum. If a business is partnering through an area school districts’ “work-based learning” or another student program, they become a GrowCB Business Member.
