Overview:

Findlay-Hancock County has experienced strong economic growth due to the assets in infrastructure that entice businesses to build and expand. That growth, which provides positive community impact and quality of life, must have a skilled workforce fueling it in order to maintain it. Raise The Bar Hancock County fills that pipeline by  collaborating with local businesses, education systems, service agencies, and others to help build a long-term, cradle-to-career growth strategy for the Findlay-Hancock County workforce.

Our mission is to prepare and connect, through education and training, an adaptive workforce for Findlay-Hancock County to meet emerging employment needs. In order to provide opportunity to people in Findlay-Hancock County, we have to change the system that has failed many, to a system that provides opportunities for all.
