Engaging small businesses in work-based learning
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity for networking, strategic, and professional learning from peers. The convention brings together more than 900 leaders in K-12 and postsecondary education, business, work force, research, policy and nonprofit for thoughtful discussion and learning aimed at ensuring all students are well prepared for college, career, and life. Attendees will be able to hear from dynamic speakers, participate in interactive breakout sessions, learn through experiential site visits, and interact with Linked Learning students.
Join Small Business Majority for a workshop on how to engage the small business community around work-based learning opportunities for youth. Our session will discuss the networks of small employers and business organizations we are building that the work-based learning community can tap into; how we are educating small business owners about assistance and programs provided by such organizations; and the best ways to engage small businesses in creating workforce opportunities for high school students.
