Educator Externship Resources: Summer 2019

During Summer 2019, YouthForce NOLA organized externships for educators to visit employers to learn about the real-world skills that create real-life success in modern workplaces. Educators were exposed to a variety of high-wage high-demand career pathways with the goal to contextualize and connect their curricula to the needs of industry. A special thank you to Ochsner Health System, LCMC Health, and LSU Health Sciences Center for making these externships possible.

Below you will find resources produced by the educators who participated in the externships. The following resources detail insights from externship participants around career pathways and corresponding technical and soft skills needed for those pathways. They are divided by workplace that the externship took place within.
