A sustainable and trained workforce is critical to the success of businesses and communities. School systems play a key role in shaping the future workforce to fulfill talent needs in their communities and regions. High school experiential learning programs effectively build talent pathways in communities, preparing students for career success through hands-on experiences. The Creating and Replicating High-quality Experiential Learning Opportunities guide is designed to help both school and business leaders conceptualize, develop and implement such experiences. The guide includes 19 case studies that teachers, administrators and local governments may find relevant to their communities.

The guide was made possible with support from Georgia Power.
