Afterschool and Intersession don't need to be a challenge

Meet your career discovery programming goals with fully-staffed, highly-rated, modern programs.

Create your own custom program

Districts across the nation have partnered with Work ED to run afterschool and intersession programs that propel their students forward.

Launch programs that students and parents love

Tailor made for you

Programs students want to attend (again and again): Choose from a selection of modern career discovery programs that get students excited.

A turnkey approach: We have a demonstrated history of helping districts launch impactful programs quickly with little lead time.

Staffing solved: We staff programs ourselves with a fully-trained team who are dedicated to helping students gain the skills they need to thrive.

Built to inspire, prepare, and foster community

Modern learning frameworks: We use a work-based learning approach to let students feel what it’s like to solve real problems as a team, learn career pathways, and build skills that go beyond textbooks.

A unique, paid mentoring program: We run a Teaching Assistant internship for high schoolers wherever we run our programs, enabling older members of the school community pay-it-forward to younger members of their community while gaining their first workplace experience.

We foster parent involvement, giving all students the opportunity to present to parents at the end of the program

Designed with every student in mind

Built to improve access: Our diverse team make classrooms a welcoming environment for every student by treating every student as an individual while understanding the intersections of different life circumstances.

Improved attendance: We make sure programs are advertised in accessible ways for all students, including bilingual families, so that more are likely to opt-in to programs, and have a marketing system that boosts attendance.

Social emotional learning: We use an SEL framework to help students develop "soft skills" that help them understand their emotions, their impacts on others, and learn what they're truly capable of.
