NAF believes that all students should have the advantage of a high quality, paid internship before they graduate high school. But how is every academy supposed to achieve this ambitious goal? A series of sequenced work-based learning experiences throughout the academy experience will set up NAF students and partners for internship success. NAF has gathered effective work-based learning and advisory board development practices from across the network and organized them into the exciting new Work-Based Learning Center at workbasedlearning.naf.org. Learn how the Work-Based Learning Center was developed from the NAF network leaders themselves and how to utilize these tools to help your academy reach 100%. This session will provide time for participants to explore the site, so please bring a laptop, tablet, or other internet-ready device to the session.

  • 7. Work-Based Learning Center #NAFNext2014 Scavenger Hunt #2 Scenario 2: As a brand new academy director I know that we have some students participating in job shadows and internships, but think we should be doing a better job of providing all of our students with WBL opportunities.
