Workers of Tomorrow

Experiential Learning Opportunities Can Help Your Business or Project

Do you have work that needs to get done but you don’t have the staff to do it?

Do you have a project that you need help with on a short term basis?

If so, then perhaps a college/university student could help you with your current talent challenges and enable you to be more productive, as well as provide you with a source for innovative ideas!

The Greater Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber of Commerce (GKWCC) has partnered with the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD), Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU), the University of Waterloo (UW), and Conestoga College (CC) on an exciting new project to help small businesses (less than 50 employees) connect with college/university students who are available for co-op work terms, project work, as well as other experiential learning opportunities.

Interested in learning how a student could help you? Contact Allison Mitchell, Experiential Learning Outreach Coordinator at the GKWCC for more information on how a college/university student could help you!
