Resource Training & Solutions is excited to launch a series of programs and support aimed at integrating career exploration and experiences within all content areas by collaborating with central Minnesota businesses, workforce centers, and our regional school districts. Integrating career awareness and exploration into students' everyday coursework can build relevance in their learning and provide opportunities to make connections with businesses and develop 'soft skills.'
Our goal is to provide students with experiential learning opportunities that will equip them with the skills needed to succeed in today's workforce.
These almost monthly network virtual meetings provide opportunities within this group to collaborate, share ideas, develop professionally, and stay current on issues facing schools and districts regarding post-secondary planning and career development.
First Meeting: October 10th, 2023

Career Pathway District Alignment
We are excited to partner with districts to evaluate and enhance career pathways tailored to student and workforce needs. This initiative will utilize data and standards to help districts create a clear vision for career planning. Career pathway development in grades 5 through 12 allows districts to provide transparency, data-driven decision making, and students who are prepared to embrace their career path.
Teacher Externship Program
The purpose of this program is to bring career-based classroom curricula to life, while building a bridge between skill-based and knowledge-based education. Through this unique professional development opportunity, middle and high school teachers from the Resource Training & Solutions region will be selected to work side-by-side with an industry peer during a 3 to 5 day paid summer externship at a participating central Minnesota business.
