Looking for New Talent? AWFS Offers Guidelines for Partnering with Schools

Outreach to Schools

The resources you will find here are intended to assist companies in developing partnerships with schools towards the larger goal of creating the next generation of viable and skilled employees. The lack of a skilled workforce is a challenge that must be taken on by the industry itself. Once we accept that, we can get to work on a solution.

Below are basic guidelines and related forms for:

  • partnering with high schools with the intention to hire students at graduation
  • offering student internships and teacher externships
  • visiting schools as a guest speaker
  • opening your company doors for school tours

These documents are all in “Word” format so you can customize any of them with company content, specific needs, photos, logos, etc. They are intended to give you basic information to get you started. These are “living” documents that will continue to be updated with relevant information. You are invited to submit comments, examples or suggestions for incorporation. Be a part of the solution!
