What is a work-based learning intermediary?

An intermediary is an individual that connects teachers and students with quality industry professionals and/or career mentors. In the realm of work-based learning, intermediaries such as those that work for Hawaii Workforce Pipeline identify or create internship opportunities, small or large-scale virtual career fairs, teacher externships, and much more. As intermediaries, it is our kuleana or job to do the hustling in the background so our schools and teachers can provide the work-based learning activities to meet their workforce development and career awareness goals for their students.
