Hands-on Experience with Local Employers

You may have heard the phrase that in life  “it is not what you know, it is who you know”. This does not mean that someone can get by without education, but it does mean that it is important to connect yourself to like-minded people who can help you grow. Beyond the interactive platform, this is how Nextwork seeks to help you plan for a successful future:

  • On-site shadowing experiences: Experience “a day in the life” at a local business by visiting them on-site for a day.
  • Speakers with diverse backgrounds: Representatives from local businesses will visit your school and present information about career paths and job opportunities with their company.
  • Experiential Learning Opportunities: Take a hands-on approach to learning with job opportunities that are structured to teach you the skills you need to be successful.
  • Career Potential: Find jobs that will provide opportunities for growth, ample pay, and stability to build a foundation while building a plan for your future after high school.
