Workforce Development

Afterschool and summer learning programs prepare young people for the jobs of tomorrow and help working parents keep their jobs. Investing in these programs will help build New Hampshire’s future workforce and ensure that our businesses can succeed and grow.

By partnering with local businesses, afterschool and summer learning programs can offer unique, real-world experiences that help young people develop critical workforce skills, explore potential career paths and connect with opportunities that encourage them to stay in New Hampshire.

What local businesses can do to help:

  • Offer mentorships and internships

  • Implement a job-shadowing opportunity

  • Promote volunteer positions for youth

  • Develop scholarships

  • Connect with programs through enrichment clubs

  • Offer on-site field trips
