In Peyton School District, students work with $800,000 worth of the latest high-tech woods machinery and equipment. In Denver Public Schools, hundreds of students participated in career training opportunities via the CareerConnect – CareerLaunch Internship Program in 2016. These are just two examples of the great work-based learning opportunities available to Colorado students.
While there are similar pockets of success statewide, we hear time and again, from both business and education, that they need a one-stop shop for launching work-based learning programs and building public-private partnerships. In response, we created one-page guides for business and education communities to help offer students relevant, rigorous, and valuable opportunities that will prepare them for their future:
- A Guide for Business – Prepare Your Future Workforce
- Topics include: career awareness, career preparation, STEM diplomas, skills development, and supporting teachers, and more.
- A Guide for Schools – Prepare Students for an Evolving Future
- Topics include: Career training, career awareness, sssessing local opportunities, designing community partnerships, and more.
We hope you will use these partner-vetted materials to explore the variety of programs and opportunities available to students and your business. If you have questions or want to get involved, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
