Youth Employment Convening: Work-Based Learning

We often hear that student employees lack "soft skills." But now you have the opportunity to help your high school age employees build those skills through work-based learning, and use it as a way to help grow your workforce. Hosted by the City of Madison, the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, Madison Metropolitan School District and the Workforce Development Board of South Central Wisconsin. Growing Your Workforce & Their Employability Skills Madison students can earn school credit for their work and volunteer experiences by working with a mentor or supervisor to build employability skills. This is an opportunity for businesses to ensure students are developing essential workplace skills. What Is Work-Based Learning? Work-based learning opportunities allow students to take what they learn in the classroom and use it at their job or volunteer experience.

When paired with opportunities like part-time jobs, internships, apprenticeships or volunteering, learning becomes more meaningful and relevant to students, making them more engaged and excited about their education and future career.
