Business Engagement


The Northern Kentucky Education Council connects the business community to schools throughout Northern Kentucky by improving communication and sharing resources and expertise. Schools cannot accomplish their academic goals alone and involving a business partner is critical to their growth and preparing students for future success. By becoming a business partner to a school, businesses and schools can work together to develop activities to meet the needs of the school and impact workforce development in our region.
