Why work-based learning

Well-designed work-based learning opportunities provide youth participants with occupational and work readiness training while also providing necessary income support for disconnected and at-risk individuals. Based on conversation with experts, work-based learning programs for youth should include the following elements:

1. Paid work-based learning opportunities, with wages provided either through employer, provider, or combination of the two
2. Strong partnerships with business and other community stakeholders
3. Positive youth development and continued support services
4. Linkages to career pathways either through future employment opportunities or future education and training opportunities
