High Schools Teaming Up With Employers

With the US Department of Labor investing $100 million towards Youth CareerConnect, you will be seing more and more high schools create partnerships with area employers. Here are just a few examples of successful partnerships.

"For over 10 years, we have seen students excel in early college high schools that enable them to earn up to two years of free college credit or an Associate’s degree. These schools engage, support, and challenge all students—especially low-income and first-generation college goers—to pursue higher education, with excellent results.

We also see promising employer/high school partnerships nationwide, including:

    • Carrollton, Georgia’s 12 for Life program (supported by Southwire, a leading wire manufacturer) where students have access to classroom instruction, on-the-job training and certificates, skill development, and employment opportunities.
    • West Springfield, Massachusetts’ Pathways to Prosperityproject, where students pursue careers in advanced manufacturing on pathways that connect West Springfield High School with Springfield Technical Community College and local manufacturers.
    • And of course, Brooklyn’s well known P-TECH Early College High School."
