Work-Based Learning for K-12 Students

Real World Learning

Work-based learning for K-12 students provides opportunities for business-to-education engagement that helps build our future talent pipeline and retain top tier talent.

Local high school students are participating in Real World Learning for hands-on experiences to understand careers and occupation pathways better. Our goal is for every graduate by 2030 to have work-based learning experience.

To help your business engage in this important talent initiative, the Chamber has developed resources such as this Real World Learning information dashboard.
