YouthWorks Connecting Activities Program

Connecting Activities (CA) supports staff to recruit employers; prepare and place students in brokered work-based learning opportunities; and structure those experiences through the use of Massachusetts Work-Based Learning Plan.

Through CA, students achieve more learning hours by extending the classroom to the workplace while providing more adults who can support these students in one-to-one relationships.

Teacher Externship Program

Teachers and guidance counselors are invited to participate in the 2016-2017 teacher externship program to gain first-hand information from local employers on workforce needs related to your discipline. Participants will work with local employers to develop new and innovative lesson plans that focus on real world situations and the application of classroom theory to the workplace.
