Lee County EDG Announces Grow Lee

Published Monday, November 24, 2014

November 18, 2014 - At Lee County EDG's 4th and final Talent for Today & Tomorrow Breakfast Series event, we announced 2015 will be the year of action.

After listening to stakeholders' concerns, compiling industries', educators', and stakeholders' suggestions we have developed an overarching program that will help move Lee County forward. This program is called Grow Lee.

Grow Lee is a series of workforce initiatives which Lee County EDG (in concern with our partners) will be launching at the start of 2015. Programs will include: developing a Lego Robotics program for elementary students at local libraries, providing scholarships to students and adults looking to further their skills, expanding the teacher externship program in Lee County so teachers can bring real world work experience back to the classroom and much more!

  2015 is the year of action for Lee County EDG and we are asking your help to be part of an action group to make Grow Lee a reality. You are encouraged and invited to participate in one or more of the Grow Lee Programs to help make huge economic and workforce success!
