Our students are seeking both knowledge and competence, and if you really want to translate knowledge, there has to be engagement.

Business and industry continue to face a shrinking workforce, requiring creative and innovative approaches to develop untapped labor pools. In partnership with Kelly Clark, a senior extension associate with the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability, Thomas Golden is developing a new course that equips students to design and implement work-based learning practices that support the career development of secondary education students with disabilities. By assisting with a joint program offered between Cornell and TST-BOCES, students learn how to create work-based learning opportunities that align with both youth and employer goals.
