Providing hands-on experience
Worksite tours give high school students the chance to visit a workplace and see what a company does, hear from employees about their educational and professional pathways, and participate in work-based problems or activities. These experiences are designed to be impactful and increase the relevancy of K-12 education, give students insight into what careers are possible, and forge enduring relationships between employers and schools.
Since 2016, we’ve partnered with Challenge Seattle and local employers to make worksite tours available to our high schoolers. To date, we’ve organized 80 tours for more than 2,100 youth, with the aim of scaling this initiative to serve two-thirds of all ninth graders in the Road Map Project region by the 2020-21 school year.
