Middle School & High School Engagement:                  Work-Based Learning Experiences 

Help students explore career options and teach them the professional skills needed to be successful in today’s labor market!

Applied and work-based learning (WBL) allows students to apply classroom content in professional settings while gaining real-world experience. WBL exists on a continuum that reflects the progress of experiences from awareness-building to training. Students often cycle back through the continuum many times throughout their educational career. Educators play a critical role in ensuring these experiences are embedded into curriculum and support learning.

Contact us for support in integrating WBL activities into your classes to connect your students’ academic learning with real-world experiences!

We provide:
– industry classroom speakers
– college program highlight tours
– industry tours
– internship and mentorship programs
– multi-program large scale college events
– professional development for educators
– assist schools to incorporate sector labor market information in their parent outreach efforts
