Our Goals

The framework of Community Promise streamlines business engagement activities to create intentional pathways for students seeking an authentic career opportunity. We don't want students to just learn about a job. We want them to pursue and earn that job. Our commitment through Community Promise is that students are connected with immediate job opportunities and equipped with skills to succeed both personally and professionally.

  • Our Community Promise is that 70% of graduating seniors will be on a pathway to having education or training beyond high school.
  • Our Community Promise is to invest $750,000 in our own talent by 2022 to address the employment needs of our Marion business community.
  • Our community promise is to create an environment that builds community loyalty and is contagious to talent recruitment.
  • Our community promise is to be a national leader in creating an insulated talent pipeline that is a competitive advantage for our community.

We invite students and guardians to learn about your Pathway to Success and challenge businesses to make a promise to our future workforce and future leaders.

This is the promise of Marion's exceptional business environment. Will you be all in?
