Iowa Intermediary Network (Work-Based Learning)

Insert picture here

The Iowa Intermediary Network is made up of 15 regional programs, each associated with a community college. The purpose of these networks is to prepare students for the workforce by connecting businesses and the education system and offering relevent, work-based learning activities to students and teachers.

Students can work through their school counselors to connect with their regional network for assistance with job shadow and internship opportunities. These opportunities will provide hands-on learning and experience in potential career fields for students who are still on the path to discovering their career.
