Georgia Work-Based Learning

Is a work-based learning program right for your business?

The Georgia Work-Based Learning Program assists businesses with building a highly trained, technologically sophisticated and career oriented young work force. Our goal is to assist in the creation of a strong support structure between local employers, students and schools. Work-Based Learning supplies talent to address industry workforce shortage needs. We promote an industry-driven system where employers set occupational skills standards, collaborate on curriculum, provide work experience and certify mastery of skills. Focus on the future with Georgia Work-Based Learning.

Employers benefit from Work-Based Learning Programs

Our local Work Based Learning program provides sharp, professional students who are talented and eager to learn. We use WBL participants as part of our intern program and enjoy how readily they integrate with our team. It is wonderful to have this resource in our community for creating career paths that benefit small businesses with a work-ready work force to recruit locally from.

Student Success Stories: Daniela Vargas

Daniela Vargas - Humane Society of Northeast Georgia
Daniela has taken classes in both the Marketing and Management Pathway and the Healthcare Science Pathway and aspires to be a veterinarian and/or own a veterinarian clinic. She is in her first semester interning at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia with the Development Director Sam Threadgill. Sam was quoted as saying “Daniela is so efficient we have to find more things for her to do because she does them so fast. She is a joy to be around.” Daniela helps in a number of roles for HSNEG including working as an adoption assistant, clinical assistant, marketing assistant and volunteer program assistant. She was even “locked up” for a day with a shelter animal as part of the Humane Society Adoption Angel Lock In Fundraiser. She was a guest on the Fox 5 Good Day Atlanta television show as part of her internship with HSNEG. Daniela plans on continuing her education in college to pursue her dreams of being a veterinarian.
