Fall brings our students and staff back into their classrooms and this year also brings exciting news regarding partnerships between Wenatchee schools, parents, community members and business partners.

The Wenatchee School District will officially launch the Wenatchee Learns Connect partnership center during a grand opening celebration on Thursday from 2 to 5 p.m. at 2 S. Mission St., Wenatchee.

The community is invited to come celebrate with us and learn more about how they can be part of personalized learning whether it is as a classroom volunteer providing valuable support to our teachers and students or as a business partner helping youth explore career paths by hosting a job shadow or company tour.

Along with opening the doors of the partnership center, we are also launching wenatcheelearns.com a new portal for volunteers to sign up online and choose from a list of involvement categories that range from mentor to classroom presenter.

Business partners and professionals can nurture the future workforce by creating company profiles on wenatchee learns.com that are visible to students and teachers in our career discovery system Career Cruising.

Moreover, professionals can encourage and share knowledge and expertise with students as online career coaches.

Connecting students with people who are working in the real world — in a field that interests the student — is the best way to inspire them to get busy defining their career goals. Making careers real motivates students and helps them find relevancy in school subjects.

By investing time in our youth, we are making a direct investment in the future of our community. We hope you will join us for the inauguration of Wenatchee Learns Connect, a bold step towards making learning personal for our kids and community.

For more information about Wenatchee Learns Connect, call 888-2828, drop by the partnership center at 2 S. Mission St. or visit wenatchee learns.com.

Diana Haglund is the Wenatchee Learns Coordinator for the Wenatchee School District. She can be reached at haglund.d@mail.wsd.wednet.edu
