DWD and its partners have embarked on an effort to ensure work and learn opportunities for all Hoosier students, and encourage schools, businesses and educators to create and identify viable options for exposure to work environments. Elevating Work & Learn in Indiana focuses on successful programs across the state that are creating learning opportunities for students and educators, through a variety of methods, programs, and experiences.
The 2016 conference took place on October 20, 2016 as part of the Indiana Sectors Summit. Click here for presentations and more information.
