“Be The Spark” 7th Grade Business Tour

MMAC’s Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE) partners with Milwaukee Public Schools to host 50 “Be The Spark” behind-the-scenes business tours for 7th graders – exposing them to local jobs and careers.

Subcontractors Illingworth-Kilgust Mechanical, J.F. Ahern, Neumann Company, State Painting and Venture Electrical helped to provide a 90 minute on-site experience at Aurora St. Luke’s Heil Center for students from Audubon Technology & Communication Center Middle School in Milwaukee.
