7th Up Biz Tour

The Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce through the Community Council Building Bridges program, in partnership with the Bangor School Department, will transported 7th graders from Bangor area schools on a day-long tour of Chamber member businesses in 2018 and 2019.

Goals and takeaways:

  • Expose the students to a variety of jobs and workplaces.
  • Students will learn about educational opportunities to train for these jobs, hear the stories from people in these jobs.
  • Students will learn about the importance of “soft skills” such as showing up on time, working as a team member, positive attitudes.
  • This will become an annual event for 7th graders and become a valuable part of their education and curriculum.
  • This will eventually benefit area businesses and our economy by developing our future workforce.
  • This model can and will be replicated by other Chambers in Maine and perhaps other states.

7th Up Biz Tour is a Building Bridges event.
