Benefits to Schools

By joining Young Chamber schools can take advantage of the many connections that the WCNW Chamber has with businesses from across the region.

Students will be able to gain an invaluable insight into the world of work, and will have the opportunity to discover the different careers that are available to them, as well as the routes that they can take to get there.
