NextWork is an Opportunity Platform that allows Northeast Ohio businesses to offer opportunities for schools, students and the public to engage in a collaborative way.
The business community and K-12 education will work collaboratively to:
• Create an organizational structure that will centralize the process of providing these experiences/opportunities in order to coordinate all efforts seamlessly
• Provide experiences and opportunities for students to become familiar with careers so that they may make thoughtful and strategic decisions about their future
• Provide experiences and opportunities for school staff and community members to become aware of and understand their local business sectors
