Matching talented students with committed employers.

Aerojet Rocketdyne is committed to helping to develop a pipeline of talent for our region’s future. Using the LaunchPath tool streamlined the process to find the right intern from an engineering pathway program and working with the [Foundation] made it possible for our company to hire a high school intern.

LaunchPath is an online tool that uses comprehensive data systems and analytics to match students and employers for internships and other work-based learning experiences. Our advanced matching and badging platform identifies students with the right interests and experiences and simplifies the process for creating beneficial work based learning experiences for these students. This real world experience enables students to master the skills required to attain careers that align with their interests. LaunchPath aims to take work-based learning to scale throughout California and help students aspire for success both inside the classroom and beyond.

LaunchPath is administered through a partnership with the Linked Learning Alliance and funded through a $1.2 million investment in workforce readiness training in Northern California-part of a five year, $250 million New Skills at Work global initiative.
