Education

Back to School 16 2The Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to supporting quality education, recognizing it is fundamental to developing a workforce with the knowledge and skills required for the future.

It is with a commitment to those values that the Chamber partners with area schools—from pre-K through post-secondary schools and colleges—to provide programs, incentives, mentors, internships and scholarships to students, employers and employees alike.

The Chamber’s view of education is broader than just primary, secondary and post-secondary schooling. There are an abundance of resources and ongoing seminars on important topics that affect investors and their teams. Among those activities are Leadership Irving, workforce development and great programs to help small businesses become established and succeed.
