A proven best practice for enhancing student education is creating stronger connections between teachers/counselors and local businesses and industries. The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) has a summer internship program doing just that titled Work-Based Learning Teachers/Counselors in Industry.

Teachers and counselors accepted into the summer program receive a stipend from IDOE to spend a day or several days in local businesses and industries learning about what they do. If you are interested in hosting a local teacher or counselor for a day or a week – free of charge to your business – contact Kelly Dunn at [email protected] to find out more.
