CEO in the Classroom

CEO in the Classroom - Pilot Program

CEO in the Classroom

CEO in the Classroom is a  pilot program that will bring business owners and professionals into 8th-grade classrooms, discussing life after high school, living expenses and careers in Des Moines County. CEO in the Classroom paints the picture of the financial benefits for students when they chose in-demand careers and education pathways that lead to great paying local jobs in our low cost of living communities. The program helps draw a contrast to student loan debt associated with empty degrees with nor real career opportunity.

Educators, students and local business leaders are providing feedback as part of the pilot project. If well-received, CEO in the Classroom will be offered to every 8th-grade classroom in both public and private schools throughout the region.
