NEVADA LAUNCHES STATEWIDE WORK-BASED LEARNING HUB TO CONNECT YOUNG ADULTS TO APPRENTICESHIPS AND INTERNSHIPS

LAS VEGAS/CARSON CITY, NV (October 2018) – The Nevada Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation (OWINN) officially launched a statewide work-based learning hub (LifeWorksNV.org) for young adults in high school, post-secondary or out of school to find internships, apprenticeships, and on-the-job training. The hub also allows educators and businesses to learn about apprenticeships, find career technical education (CTE) schools by industry and zip codes, connect to classroom speakers and find relevant work-based learning resources. 

“As Nevada’s economy continues to diversify and grow, work-based learning opportunities are an excellent way to connect Nevada’s young adults to potential career paths,” said Governor Sandoval. “The launch of LifeWorksNV.org will allow organizations to post internship and apprenticeship opportunities on the site while making it easier for young adults to find real-life work opportunities and build the relevant skills they will need to be competitive in the New Nevada.”

OWINN is looking to get more businesses and organizations to post internships or other on-the-job training opportunities on the hub by going to LifeWorksNV.org and clicking “Post Internships or On-the-Job Training” on the home page. The Registered Apprenticeships are already listed. Phase 2 of the work-based learning hub will focus on developing an interactive Learn & Earn Advanced-career Pathways (LEAP) framework initially developed by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and gamifying the work-based learning hub as part of a mobile friendly application young adults can download through a partnership with the Nevada Department of Education and OWINN.
