The business community has a real and immediate need to be a full partner in the education and development of our local labor force. Having a good working relationship between education and the Hayward Chamber of Commerce will give the education community a firm understanding of regional business and labor market trends.
Business and education partners can act collaboratively to train the students that would result in a better-educated labor force. In addition, business and education together have the capacity to deliver strong training programs that increase the number of skilled workers in Hayward. The collective business expertise of the Chamber of Commerce compliments existing schools to career programs and elevates curriculum development and career exploration opportunities by providing work base and school base training to students.
