The Milford Conversation will feature Kate Lynch talking about the Work-Based Learning program at the district

The Milford Conversation, an informal discussion group that focuses on business and organizational matters in the city, will offer a presentation by Kate Lynch regarding the Work-Based Learning program offered in the district. The meeting will be held Thursday, March 2 at 8:30 AM in the library of the First Presbyterian Church of Milford.

“Work-based learning offers students the opportunity to further their education in a career area, demonstrate and extend career major competencies while also providing a service to the community,” John Huntzinger, leader of the Milford Conversation, said. “This type of program can hone skills learned in CTE courses and help students develop new skills working with experienced industry professionals.”

Lynch will provide details on how work experience can offer the means and motivation for all students to learn and grow in a real, work-world environment related to what they are studying in high school. The program also helps develop qualified candidates for employment, a benefit to local employers.

Refreshments are offered at the Milford Conversation and the programs last about one hour. The church is located 101 South Walnut Street in Milford. Visitors should park behind the church and enter in the back door off Pearl Alley, walk through the kitchen in order to access the library.
