Opportunities available to assist the U.P. Cybersecurity Institute

InvestUP Board Members NMU and Innovate Marquette SmartZone are involved in a national project through the Center on Rural Innovation (CORI) to deliver inclusive digital jobs training and career placement support to rural residents across the country.

Through the program, CORI will recruit 12 AmeriCorps VISTA members to help build the capacity and implement tech-focused programs in 6 rural communities, including Marquette. VISTA members will serve for one year, beginning mid-July 2021.

With recruiting now live, NMU and Innovate Marquette SmartZone are seeking assistance in recruiting VISTAs, especially those who may be interested in assisting the Upper Peninsula Cybersecurity Institute with its mission in delivering cybersecurity and career exploration throughout the U.P. If you or someone you know is interested, learn more and apply here.

As a part of our commitment to the Upper Peninsula, we collaborate with partners to share some of the most compelling stories about business and job growth across the region. Our goal through these stories is to get at the heart of what makes the U.P. unique — and to ensure these stories travel beyond our peninsula and broadly illustrate why the UP is the place to live and work.
