Description: The Boot Camp is a five day experience for area educators designed with the purpose to provide first-hand experience about rewarding careers available in in-demand industry sectors of the county.

On day one, participating educators convene for an orientation to set the purpose for the Boot Camp.
In small groups they discuss big questions like: “What are the three most important skills students must have to be successful in manufacturing and why?” or “How should education change to be more relevant to student’s lives and future careers?” These questions spark interest and set a purpose for the remainder of the Boot Camp.

On days 2-4, the educators tour six business sites during the experience. They learn about good paying jobs/careers available in the industries and the skills students need to be successful in securing and retaining these positions. They learn about educational advancement and benefits provided by the company and available to students without incurring college debt. Participating teachers synthesize the information gleaned from industry tours and create a culminating unit or project to use in their classrooms with their students based on their experience. On day 5 of the Boot Camp, these projects are presented to all educators in the Boot Camp to inspire and provoke public use of the classroom lessons into other classrooms.

Educators earn three hours of graduate credit from Ashland University for successful completion of the full Boot Camp and creation of the unit or project to be used with students. Generous community foundations and agencies have provided funding to offset a majority of the graduate credit.
