Business Education Partnership
Riverside College & Career Fair
The Chamber enlists the business community to support its annual Riverside College & Career Fair, which provides thousands of Riverside students and their families with a one-stop opportunity to get the information they need to apply for college and find a career pathway.
In partnership with the City of Riverside, the Chamber convenes businesses that are looking for university level interns through the Riverside EDvantage program. Local employers have a unique opportunity to help shape the development of their own future workforce and students gain practical experience and discover the advantages of working and living in Riverside.
Principal for a Day
The Chamber recruits businesses to become a Principal for a Day at Alvord Unified School District and Riverside Unified School District. This hands-on opportunity allows members to connect with a principal or school administrator and learn about the successes and challenges of today’s local schools.
Read Across America – Dr. Seuss Day
The Chamber supports Read Across America and enlists members to visit a classroom, engage with students, and read from their favorite children’s book. This annual event recognizes the importance of motivating children to read in order to create a workforce that is ready for 21st century jobs.
Science and Technology Education Partnership
The Chamber is a sponsor of the Science and Technology Education Partnership (STEP) conference to bridge the skills gap between our K-12 students and high-technology industry needs. Thousands of students from across the region visit the Riverside Convention Center to learn about science concepts.
New District Employees Welcome
Chamber members have the opportunity to support local schools and promote their business by donating general school supplies or promotional items to welcome new teachers and staff at Alvord Unified School District and Riverside Unified School District. The supplies are given to the teachers and staff at their district welcome reception.
