School-to-business connections

Bringing together local business and education leaders, Sourcewell strives to close the workforce skill gap in central Minnesota. Working together, we can ensure area students have the resources they need to be successful in high-wage, high-skill, and high-demand careers.

Teacher externships

Sourcewell sponsors week-long, paid externships for teachers to work with a local business to help build school-business relationships, and connect educators and classrooms with real world skills to help build the bridge from classroom to career.
