Know Your Community for Adventure Coast (KYC)
The Know Your Community Program is for those who interact with visitors in their work to have a clear and consistent message for the visitor. This will help “front-line” workers to learn more about what the community has to offer and share what you learn with those who visit.
We want the visitor to know how to have a variety of experiences for their trip so they will keep coming back. This is especially valuable for your new employees.
Those who interact with visitors are very important to our community, that’s why we want you to Know Your Community and be a good Community Ambassador.
The communities of Coos Bay, North Bend, and Charleston have chosen to work with OSG/OSU Extension tourism program to create their own Know Your Community training.
They want their local workforce to be able to share about great things to do in the area:
- Local Restaurants
- Local Events
- Local Attractions
- Local Tours & Guided Experiences
- Local Lodging
- Visitor Center Location
- Tourism’s Economic Impact and Tourism Organizations
- and select special features relevant to visitors
This program is being conducted in partnership by the Coos Bay/North Bend Visitor & Convention Bureau, Oregon State University Extension Tourism Program, the Southwestern Oregon Workforce Investment Board and the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce. Visitors to Coos Coos County spent 261 million dollars in the year 2017 alone!
OSU Extension can create a customized Know Your Community program for your community also, just contact us! You can use the Service Request link on the main menu bar.
