The Employability Coalition is focused on workforce development and employability from third grade through the end of career. Current projects include increasing career awareness through partnerships with events such as the Franklin County Career & Technology Middle School Open House and the Early Childhood Expo. The Employability Coalition is also hosting the inaugural Franklin County High School Business Challenge in which teams of high school students from across Franklin County create a business plan for a real or imaginary business. The business plans are judged in a shark tank like event in April.
