Three Wednesdays in June we will gather for Butler County Business Tours; allowing educators to learn about and tour local businesses. The visits allow local educators to view the work occurring in local businesses, learn what local businesses are looking for in employees, and what education/training the business requires of employees. Educators will be able to pass on this first-hand information and experience to their students and possibly network for future classroom activities.   You can come one Wednesday or come to all three.
