Bus to Business® is a statewide initiative focused on connecting students with employers and bringing classrooms to careers. The goal of the program is to show students what career pathways are in their own communities. Through this program, students are given the opportunity to tour businesses, complete hands-on work-based learning activities, and speak directly with employers and industry leaders about career pathways available in their organizations. Students learn about what careers are in demand in Kentucky and what it takes to attain them.
