Blog | How partnerships between educators and industry can connect students to careers
The world of business and industry is forever changing. New technologies and innovations are a constant – new jobs, new fields, new ways of working and a variety of career pathways that, in some cases, did not exist a few years ago. Ensuring that the workforce of tomorrow is prepared for an ever-evolving job market is critical to building the pipeline of highly qualified employees that businesses need to continue their growth and success. An innovative and effective approach to prepare students for their future careers lies within partnerships between businesses and educators, like the Maryland Chamber Foundation’s Teacher Externship Program.
Learn about this year’s program, which will pair a record 23 teachers from across the state with leading, innovative businesses for a four-week externship this summer.

The 2023 National Civics Bee competition is underway at the local level!
Over the last several weeks, judges from the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, Frederick County Chamber of Commerce, Greater Crofton Chamber of Commerce and the Howard County Chamber of Commerce have reviewed and evaluated essays submitted by Maryland middle school students from across the state, each selecting 20 local finalists to compete in their upcoming local Civics Bee competitions.
