What Is MI Bright Future?

MI Bright Future is a dedicated group of K-12 education, higher education, workforce development, and employer partners who are working to bring a technology called Career Cruising Inspire (ccInspire) to southeast Michigan schools.

ccInspire is a software enhancement to Career Cruising, the technology schools in the region are already using to create Educational Development Plans, which are required by the Michigan Department of Education. ccInspire is a community-development platform that makes it easy for students and educators to learn about and connect with local employers and community mentors.

Through e-mentoring, message boards, and company profiles, ccInspire connects what’s happening in today’s classroom with current and projected needs among local employers.
