Unify Great Southwest Industrial Park

The Great Southwest Industrial Park is home to thousands of businesses and over 100 million square feet of industrial real estate.  Unfortunately, we are often too focused on our core businesses and day-to-day operations and, thus, the wealth of knowledge, experiences, shared concerns, and shared issues are sadly left untapped and unshared. 

The GSWIDA hopes to change this and be the conduit of information and resources to you.

Cultivating Business for Practiums | Arlington ISD Students

The Arlington Independent School District is now working to secure practicum opportunities for the upcoming 2020-21 school year, with the first placement of students in September 2020.

We invite your support to open up a practicum experience to offer job shadowing, mentoring and provide practical application experiences to participating students. The practicum will benefit AISD high school seniors who wish to have a learning experience in entry level and middle skill careers. Practicum opportunities can be made available either as paid or unpaid.
