About Your Future Is Our Business

Your Future Is Our Business was formed in 1993 by a Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce education committee. Ever since, our mission is to provide every Santa Cruz County student with opportunities to discover a fulfilling and successful career. In the modern, shifting workplace, students need to make informed decisions that empower them to forge careers. We bring schools and businesses together to support students in becoming Santa Cruz County’s next generation of workers. It’s all about providing young people clear direction in their lives.

We implement work-based learning, the educational strategy providing students with real-life experiences and the opportunity to improve their academic and technical skills, while developing their employability. Our work includes building a countywide network of community leaders and businesses who see the talent and potential in our students. With this incredible support, we host monthly career panels and expos at various schools, ranging from K-12th grade. Students receive a real-world setting along with practical advice on planning a career path. We are fully staffed by college interns, supervised by a part-time executive director, all coordinating together to successfully run a non-profit organization.

Today, students who have participated in our programs can be found throughout the county, working in every industry. It’s likely that you’ve worked with them, employed them, received the benefits of their talents, or availed yourself of their professional services. We’re proud of the students who we have inspired to follow their dreams to great careers. We have a heartfelt appreciation to all the businesses and professionals who have given their time to guide our youth.
