HOW CAN I HELP AS A RESIDENT?
A welcoming community is part of what makes the Fairmont area such a great place to live! Reach out to those new neighbors down the street. Introduce yourself, tell them about the resources available in our community, invite them to an event, and send them to our website: www.FairmontAreaLife.com! Tell them about “Newcomers and Neighbors,” a community program that meets every 5th Thursday, where they can have some fun while connecting with people and organizations in our area. Remember to let them know about all the great resources available to them at our Chamber office, including brochures, maps, phone books and more! Let’s work together to make this the warmest community in the upper Midwest!
HOW CAN WE RETAIN LOCAL GRADUATES?
There is an abundance of opportunity for local high school graduates to build a successful career right here in the Fairmont area! An effort to inform students and parents of these opportunities is now underway. The CareerWISE literature was developed through a cooperative effort between the Fairmont Area Chamber of Commerce and the Fairmont Economic Development Authority (FEDA). Key information on current workforce trends and in-demand careers in Southwestern Minnesota are presented along with resources for individuals to research local job openings, career cross-sections, and educational options. The back of the flyer features local opportunities for high school graduates to connect with apprenticeships, on-the-job training and tuition assistance programs from area businesses and organizations.
