Contact(s)

The Work-Based Learning Awareness Stage provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of different careers.

Career Fairs

Career Fairs provide a structured opportunity for students to engage with industry professionals in multiple career paths. Career Fairs are also an opportunity for students to practice professional communication skills.

For more information, visit: Connect with your Local Intermediary to discuss opportunities for your students and school district.

Student Tours

Student tours are an organized event where a group of students visit a community partner site to learn more about the various career path opportunities available with that employer, ask questions to professionals, and if possible, a hands-on opportunity on-site related to the career path.

For more information, visit: Connect with your Local Intermediary to discuss opportunities for your students and school district.

Classroom Speakers

Classroom speakers provide an opportunity to connect with students to an applicable industry professional. Classroom speakers bring value to the content by connecting value of concepts taught by the educator.
