Over 800 high school sophomores. Nearly 30 local companies. Over 25 buses. 9 high schools. 7 organizational community partners. 3 keynote speakers. One amazing opportunity to explore future career paths!
February 2nd is not only Groundhog Day, it is National Job Shadow Day, but moving forward, high school students in Solano County may start to think of it as Inspire Day.
Inspire: Dreams Move Forward is the second leg of a program that began three years ago with the Inspire: Dreams Start Now event for 8th grade students and will eventually include a component for high school seniors. The goal of the Inspire program is to connect Solano County’s workforce pipeline with the dreams and aspirations of K-12 students in the local area.
