WHY DO THIS?

As an educator, you play a critical role in preparing students for success in school and beyond

Your support of this effort is crucial to our future workforce – your students. Your influence spans beyond the intellectual teachings in the classroom. In today’s competitive world, the workplace needs individuals with a high level of 21st century skills. Most young people entering the workforce are not prepared and lack both the hard and soft skills needed to be successful. Work-based learning (WBL) provides students the opportunity to acquire these skills and links classroom learning to workplace achievement.

EXPECTATIONS

Students seek a clear connection between their future career(s) and their classwork. The opportunity to explore and experience a world of work is beneficial to career decision-making.

The businesses that have joined the YBC have shown their commitment to working with the Charlotte region’s students through WBL experiences.
As a participating educator, we ask you to:

  • PREPARE - familiarize yourself with the company/organization to ensure your student would be a good match for the opportunity
  • CONNECT - contact the company/organization to become acquainted with its representative
  • COMMUNICATE CLEARLY - be explicit with the company/organization about the who, what, where and when of the provided career experience
  • MAINTAIN FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION - companies/organizations need adequate time to prepare for career experiences and ongoing assistance and support
