The Maryland Chamber Foundation seeks partnerships for their 2020 Summer Externship Program:
Looking for a way to give back to your community, while also helping to build the workforce of the future? The Maryland Chamber Foundation’s Teacher Externship Program is a four-week program in July that bridges the gap between businesses and educators by pairing high school teachers with top Maryland businesses that can provide hands-on experience in industries related to the subjects they teach. The Chamber Foundation is turning to the state’s economic development community to help them match teachers to a related industry. Last summer, teacher externs worked at cutting-edge manufacturing companies Stanley Black & Decker, Volvo and Toroid.
The program will enable all externs to receive a stipend from the Foundation, and up to four continuing professional development (CPD) credits from the Maryland State Department of Education. They’ll also gain invaluable experiences and perspectives that they can share with their students—through field trips, enhanced lesson plans and exciting classroom activities—when they return to the classroom in the fall.
On January 29, join Whitney Harmel, Vice President, Membership and Development, Maryland Chamber Foundation, as she walks through the details of the program, its benefits and how you can get involved!
