Business Partners Supporting Career Exploration!


Thank you for your willingness to help CCSD students become Future Ready by providing career exploration opportunities, also called “work-based learning” (WBL) experiences.

Students are naturally curious about careers aligned with their interests and goals, and engaging in authentic conversation with practicing professionals is an important part of their journey.

Building early professional relationships with emerging talent, much like college sports coaches do with prized recruits, has proven to be a successful talent development strategy for many Charleston area organizations.

Single day experiences like guest speakers (in-person & via Zoom), worksite visits, and job shadowing build student interest to pursue internships, summer career camps, and youth apprenticeships!
