Webinar - Building Career Readiness: Middle School Work-Based Learning
Thursday, December 08, 2022
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Eastern Standard Time
The audience will consist primarily of educators, administrators, school, and district leaders seeking to expand access to career pathways and programs of study that align with middle school work-based learning experiences.
Today’s students crave “real-world” experience and want opportunities to apply learning and gain experience in careers at increasingly younger ages. Formal experiential experiences, like internships, apprenticeships, and job shadowing have traditionally been reserved for high school and college students, but some organizations and schools are redefining work-based learning in the middle grades space. Join panelists from Apprentice Learning and Big Picture Learning as they highlight their innovative programs unique partnership to pilot work-based learning opportunities for middle grades students.
AMLE and American Student Assistance® (ASA), a national nonprofit changing the way middle and high schoolers learn about careers and navigate education-to-career opportunities, have partnered to make this panel discussion free to all schools.
