Mohawk Valley EDGE has taken the initiative to directly introduce young people to career opportunities available in the Mohawk Valley. The goal of mvEDGEucators was to reverse the population trend of young people leaving the region while addressing the concern of businesses that they cannot fill jobs. Since the introduction of the mvEDGEucators program hundreds of students in over a dozen schools have heard its message.
The original program, we used for several years, was dated. With the help of the Leadership Mohawk Valley Class of 2010, mvEDGEucators 2.0 was created. This new program focuses on the regions primary industry clusters, explains the impact of those industries and uses testimonials from local professionals to explain life and career choices.
The program introduction includes an overview of the regions key quality of life attributes and compares of the cost of living in a major metro market vs. the Mohawk Valley.
There is also a break down of the primary industry clusters for the Mohawk Valley. Each cluster segment includes the variety of jobs available, skills needed, salaries and a testimonial from someone working in that field from the region. The level of skills necessary to obtain these jobs is explored to make the student aware of the courses in high school, college or trade school. College as well and BOCES and certificate trade programs are emphasized as the avenue by which these skills can be obtained.
By exposing students to opportunities here in the Mohawk Valley, we are beginning to influence the decision making process to include career tracks within the region.
The goal of mvEDGEucators is to leave students with the understanding that they can make a good living here in the Mohawk Valley.
