Career Ready

Welcome to WorkReady

Business Partnerships linking schools to work and work to schools.  The new Chamber initiative builds a strong partnership between our business community and school children.  Centennial School District, Gresham-Barlow School District, Reynolds School District, Mt. Hood Community College, and the City of Gresham are partners with the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce to create opportunities for children and businesses. This k-12 program is in its infancy but already is making a difference in workforce development.  Meet Asha and get in on the ground level of what the future will hold.
