My company would like to learn more about hosting a one day Workplace Exploration
This introduction to the culture and purpose of a workplace is designed for a group of 8-20 students who arrive around 10 am. A team of company professionals presents an overview of the business and participates with students in hands-on activities to practice communication and self-presentation skills while sharing career knowledge about your industry. Typically, a company would offer lunch and an opportunity to informal conversation among youth and adults. Typically, the exploration wraps up between 1pm and 2 pm.
If you interested in hosting a group of students for a workplace exploration, here are a few considerations.
My company would like to learn more about hosting an Apprenticeship
A company hosts 1-6 students once a week on the same day for two hours over six weeks. Students travel independently to your workplace and participate in activities hosted by your employees that help describe and model business practices. Apprenticeships occur during the school day, typically for two hours between the hours of 12 noon-3:30 pm. Students are dismissed from the worksite. Apprenticeships typically occur during November/December and February/March.
Our staff works with you to create age-appropriate tasks that are engaging and can be delivered by any member of your organization. To help you design an appropriate experience, a worksite specialist will meet with you at your business to discuss ideas and help design an apprenticeship.
