FINDING, DEVELOPING AND KEEPING YOUNG TALENT IN YOUR WORKPLACE.


Future NB helps employers access student talent to develop their workforce, start new or expand current projects, and recruit and retain new employees through experiential learning. These early meaningful connections with students help employers to continue to do great work today – and plan for tomorrow’s needs at the same time.

What is Experiential Learning?

Experiential learning provides students with the opportunity to participate in experiences connected to their academic field of study, reflect and derive meaning from these experiences, and apply their learning in the classroom, in future placements and upon graduation.

As a leading employer, in the private or not-for-profit sector, you can partner with an educational institution to provide meaningful experiential learning opportunities for students. By supporting these experiences, students will gain a tangible avenue to explore their passions, identify transferable skills and competencies, and prepare them to create a brighter New Brunswick.
