Overview

overview

Starting June 2023, the Summer Educator Externship Program will connect counselors, college and career advisors and career and technical leaders with employers in-demand industries and apprenticeship programs in our region. Educators will have the opportunity to work alongside employers for three days to learn about employability skills, company culture, and career pathways within the company. Concluding the externship, teachers are required to create lesson plans based on their experiences, which they can then use in the classroom. 

Watch our short video highlighting some of the companies and teachers who participated in last summer’s externship program.
