For the second year the Education Consortium, in conjunction with the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce, will implement the 7th Grade Career Path Fair. The University of North Georgia will host students on March 14, 2019 and Lanier Technical College will play host on April 12, 2019.
Middle school students, from the city and county public schools, choose their career path in the 8th Grade. In an effort to peak interest in students, before their decision, this fair will highlight the visual process and job opportunities in different businesses within the county.
Gainesville- Hall County embraces a culture of learning throughout life. This culture encourages educational and development opportunities for our youth, adult and senior residents. All students have taken some class from a post-secondary institution. There are formal and informal education programs for adult and senior in our higher education institutions. Educational opportunities include career advancement/ development and life style enrichment.
The Education Consortium primarily supports the Workforce Development efforts for Gainesville and Hall County.
