Resources for Employers & Community Partners

post-jobWelcome! We are eager to partner with you and are grateful for your willingness to partner with Northfield youth. Whether you are a small nonprofit, a small business or a large corporation, we are excited to work with you to engage Northfield youth to get them excited about careers in your organization.


A variety of ways to engage with youth:

1-career
Job and career exploration events designed to provide students a brief introduction to a wide variety of professions and other employment opportunities and career topics.

2-tours
Students take part in employer-led tours of worksites, and employers share information about requirements of different jobs.

3-job
Students make brief worksite visits to spend time with individual workers learning what their jobs entail.

4-mentoring
Students are paired with professionals who provide guidance and encouragement on career-related decisions and exploration.

5-entrepreneurship
Students develop a business plan, are their own boss, earn money, and run their business under the guidance of an experienced entrepreneur.

6-service
Students undertake unpaid work, geared to the public good, integrated with school learning through projects.

7-internships
Students participate in hands-on work experiences with employers that focus heavily on student learning and are supported by a school coordinator and/or teacher.  Students may earn academic credit.

8-work
Students participate in work experiences with employers, supported by a school coordinator.  Students agree to follow a training plan and may take related coursework at school.

9-apprentice
The integration of academic instruction and work-based learning. The student commits to one or two years of paid work experience in a specific trade and is registered as a youth apprentice.
