The latest issue of Focus demonstrates some of the ways West Central Initiative realizes its vision to "unite ideas and resources to help people and communities create a better tomorrow."
- Jodee Lund had the idea of holding a maker camp for elementary-age children. WCI and the Rural Schools Collaborative provided funding to help it become reality.
- Members of the West Central Minnesota Early Childhood Initiative have almost too many ideas to count! WCI helped find funding for several of their initiatives.
- Many organizations and communities are working to come up with innovative ways to build a larger, skilled workforce in our region. WCI's Workforce Solutions grant program was created to help them test out their ideas.
