The Iowa Intermediary Network Coordinators connect school districts, students, and educators to employer partners through work-based learning programs, career awareness, career exploration, and workplace learning activities. Through work-based learning experiences, the Iowa Intermediary Network is supporting the Future Ready Iowa goal for 70% of Iowa’s workforce to achieve post-secondary education or training by 2025.
Our work provides opportunities for students and educators to interact with industry professionals and to connect today’s students to future careers through high-quality, real-world experiences. We connect students and educators with classroom speakers, job shadows, worksite tours, student internships, educator externships, and other strategic activities. Our work includes career awareness, career exploration, and workplace preparation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), critical infrastructure, commercial and residential construction, advanced manufacturing, healthcare/bioscience, information technology, and other careers of interest to students.
