Career Linked Learning

What is it?

The Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce Career Linked Learning Program coordinates with school, business, and community partners to develop career-related learning experiences for students from East Multnomah County School Districts, including: Centennial School District, David Douglas School District, Gresham-Barlow School District, Parkrose School District, and Reynolds School District. The career-related learning experiences will meet the needs of every student, which includes historically underserved and marginalized students, to promote engagement, explore career pathways, and plan for their future.

Why it’s Important:

This initiative provides businesses a single point of contact to engage with education and help develop their future workforce, and give schools an entry point into businesses that are able and willing to provide career-related learning experiences to their students.

How it Works:

Asha Aiello was hired through the Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce with the purpose of enhancing and expanding career-related learning experiences and increasing alignment between K-12, post-secondary, and business and industry. These experiences will occur within the six major career sectors as defined by the Oregon State Department of Education: 1) Arts, Information and Technology, 2) Business and Management, 3) Health Sciences, 4) Human Services, 5) Industry, Engineering and Manufacturing, and 6) Natural Resources.
