BestPrep is seeking volunteers to host a teacher at their workplace for a half day this summer. Volunteers, called Business Partners, are matched with attendees allowing them to witness the work environment they are preparing their students to enter. This first-hand glimpse into business and industry is crucial as teachers work to align their curriculum to address the skills employees are seeking when hiring.
“I thought the job shadow was a GREAT experience! I learned a lot and I got to see what the corporate world looks like.” – Teacher attendee at the 2013 Technology Integration Workshop
