of jobs in Nevada require education beyond high school, yet only half require a four-year degree.
Nevada is expected to have a shortage of 28,000+ middle-skilled workers by 2024. Work-Based Learning (WBL) is a way to enable employers to develop a pipeline of skilled and work-ready employees who often remain on the job at the completion of a WBL program.
Career Bound NV is an WBL strategy that combats issues employers face by offering students an opportunity to apply classroom instruction in real-world workplaces, ensuring learning is relevant to the needs of students and employers.
We aim to connect you to meaningful career pathways while supporting schools and employers in developing workforce solutions for Nevada.
Here's our model:
JOIN Inc. will facilitate WBL placements and connect with counselors, teachers, students and employers via dedicated case managers.
Semester-long placements that result in high school credit and experiential learning with the potential for wages and college credit.
A partnership between high schools, colleges, business and industry, and government with JOIN Inc.
Our first pilot year launched in August 2019 with 15 Douglas County high school students! Get a recap of our Professional Skills Bootcamp in this video:
