The Chamber of Commerce Hawaii, in partnership with Hawaii P20 Partnerships for Education, celebrate the successful Work-Based Learning Convening that took place on September 1.
The virtual summit brought together 270+ employers, educators, legislators, and post-secondary and community partners to learn about ways all parties could get involved in work-based learning. The Chamber helped to coordinate three sessions for the convening that centered on post-secondary internships, Sector Partnerships and an ask-an-educator panel. The Chamber hopes the sessions provided new resources and ideas for work-based learning in the future. Recordings will soon be available at the link HERE.
A special mahalo goes out to Bayada Home Healthcare, DataHouse, Iwikua, Kupu Hawaii and MAO Organic Farms for serving as employer partners for the WBL Convening. Another mahalo goes to educators from Aiea, Campbell, Kapolei, Pearl City, and Waiakea High Schools for serving as educator experts on our employer-centered Sector Partnerships and Ask-An-Educator panel.
Finally, the Chamber thanks our convening partners at Hawaii P20 Partnerships for Education and partner WBL intermediary organizations Hawaii Workforce Pipeline, Kapolei Chamber of Commerce and Kauai Economic Development Board for supporting the planning of these insightful sessions.
