Shelley Poverty Q4

Large employers can work with public schools and community colleges to sponsor extension or adult-education classes to teach skills that align with available jobs in the communities in which the businesses are located. They can also offer scholarship funding for the type of certification classes that are needed to qualify for jobs in their industry or sector. Many students go through high school and college only to come out with no marketable skills. Large employers could get involved earlier and offer students a view of workplace opportunities that will be available to them after graduation. Some careers require long years of planning and education, and students might appreciate knowing that when they’re planning their education, instead of finding out on the first day that they look for a job.
