    Finding the right career path isn't always the easiest thing for high school students to do. There are plenty of college fairs, but what about students looking to go directly into the workforce. To provide a way to present those options, the South Bend Regional Chamber of Commerce partnered up with regional businesses and factories to create Manufacturing Day.

    All children are capable of being musical. That's why places like the Goshen College Music Center provide Music Together® classes. This research based program uses songs and movement to not only teach young children about music, but also gain confidence in themselves. These lessons also translate into other areas of development that will come into play later in a child's life.
