Apply to be a Northern Navigator

Northern Navigators: Opening the doors to the Grand Traverse Region to new ideas, new people, and new growth opportunities.

One of the primary functions of the Creative Coast website is to serve as a place for newcomers, or potential newcomers, to the Grand Traverse Region, to connect with people who already live here, who have chosen to live here, and who can help the newcomer feel welcomed and connected, all while offering knowledge of the regional lifestyle, recreation, schools, healthcare, real estate, and industry and career opportunities. This personalized ‘concierge service’ is intended to equip the newcomer with knowledge of the area and to get them quickly plugged into a network and the community. The Creative Coast website will include a scheduling functionality that enables prospective movers or newcomers to connect with a regional ambassador – a ‘Northern Navigator’.
