Are you interested in supporting students in their career development and expand career connected learning opportunities? 

The Edmonds School District Career and Technical Education (CTE) department is looking for business partners to assist us in strengthening and growing student awareness to career pathways, and providing career exploration and meaningful connections between student interests and their future careers.  

There are many ways you can connect passion to careers for our students:

Be a Career Speaker

In-person or virtually share your career path to middle or high school classrooms, or participate at career events

Host a Career Tour

Host a class field trip to connect career opportunities, and see professionals in the work environment

Host a Job Shadow

Host a high school student to your workplace to learn about the daily activities, work environment in your career field and career opportunities

 Join a CTE Program
Advisory Committee (PAC)

Serve as a PAC advisor with our teachers in one of our career pathways. Advisors are needed to:

  • Ensure students are learning the most current skills needed in the workplace
  • Provide guidance on career opportunities
  • Connect area employers and professionals who can help expand Career Connected Learning opportunities for our students
Host an Internship

Internship Connect is our unpaid summer internship program that offers students high school credit, work experience and a focus to their education and career pathway. Hosts are assigned a school Worksite Learning Coordinator to assist them in designing a meaningful internship experience for students while also addressing workplace values and needs.  

  • Summer internships are 12-15 hours a week during July - August
  • In-person, remote or hybrid
