Beginning in June 2021 - We can coordinate days and times

What you can do:

  • Provide the externship at your business location for three days
  • Designate a contact person to interact with us and the educators
  • Introduce the educators to different aspects of your business
  • Have different employees interact with the educators
  • Give the educators time to reflect and ask questions

This unique professional development opportunity connects the classroom to the workplace. In summer 2019, we placed 48 teachers from 3 area school districts in externships with 24 employers in various industries.
