UofW and Forster Partnership Creates Economic Opportunities for Youth

Due to a recent partnership between the University of Windsor School of Business and Forster high school, 5 students from Forster received government grants to run their own business over the summer.  This is very positive news considering that prior to this initiative, the same students had no conception of starting a business or anything of that nature.

Partnerships with the University must continue not only with schools in the west-end, but with various institutions and businesses.  The University is a gem in our community and it is in our backyard.  We must do a better job of creating partnerships to better utilize the resources and readily available skills that the University has to offer.
