Student experiences are wide ranging in the Weld RE-4 Work-Based Learning program.  “As employees with our organization, these students are part of our team,” said partner Sherry Unruh of the Sherry Unruh Allstate Agency.  “I love working with young people and sharing my knowledge of insurance.  They are hardworking and bring excited energy to our workplace.  It’s been a very rewarding experience for my team.”

“My experience in the program has been life changing.  I have been introduced to the business world and enjoyed the change of scenery from the classroom to the office,” said former student Andre del Angel, who worked for the Sherry Unruh Allstate Agency.  “The combined knowledge I gained from the workplace and the class has helped me become more confident.  I am ready for the future and to start my life after high school.”

Our local and regional businesses and communities also benefit from engagement in Work-Based Learning opportunities by closing the skills gap and developing a talent pipeline, as students can envision themselves living and working within the community.
