Bringing Businesses and Schools Together

Schools and businesses have common and often compatible goals to better prepare their students for higher education, careers, and life. The Learning First Alliance and business partners from leading industries discuss new ways to reach their mutual goals in a report, “Community in Education: Bringing Businesses and Schools Together.” It encourages schools to partner with local businesses, from large, multi-national corporations to small, family-owned storefronts, to give their students more meaningful, real-life educational experiences.

LFA also has held numerous events advocating for better apprenticeship opportunities in the United States to help students gain real-life work experience and explore specialized fields where skilled workers are in high demand.
