What happens after the externship is complete?
While the teachers/educators likely enjoyed their time learning about your company and careers, the reality of getting back the to classroom remains. Encourage teachers to brainstorm with your employees ways that they can incorporate what was learned into their future classroom lesson plans.
A few suggestions include:
- Organize a guest speaker opportunity in the extern’s classroom the following school year to present or work with students on a project. For example: Bring a technical problem to the classroom and have the business people work with the students to determine a solution.
- Organize a guest speaking opportunity to share about a variety of careers at the company.
- Bring students in for a company tour.
