We use regional workforce initiatives and internship management to connect industry employers with the K-12 workforce pipeline.
Work-based and project-based hands-on “Experiential Learning” is critical to career selection and skills development. Our goal is to connect you with employers as you explore career options and hone the necessary skills for Ohio’s in-demand industries.
Through the SOCHE Engage network, your child can gain valuable work experience and test careers before making a college decision. Internships in high school will also help your child build relationships with local employers.
