LaunchPath is an online tool that uses comprehensive data systems and analytics to connect employers with students for internships and jobs, and also helps schools schedule work-based learning activities for groups of students. 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. LaunchPath aims to take work-based learning to scale and help students and youth aspire for success both inside the classroom and beyond. Students in LaunchPath can also work to earn digital badges based on employer-driven essential 21st Century Employability Skills identified by New World of Work.
An intermediary account is available to help connect educators with employers to simplify the process of setting up internships and other work-based learning opportunities.
LaunchPath is funded through a $1.2 million grant from JPMorgan Chase, who is making an $8 million investment in workforce readiness training in Northern California—part of a five-year, $250 million New Skills at Work global initiative.
