High School Day Pass

High School Administrators – Why Attend CEIA 2019?

Are you currently preparing high school students for the future by placing them in experiential education/internship experiences?  Experiential education experiences should be accessible for all students to help with choices in being college, career, and life ready.  The Cooperative Education and Internship Association (CEIA) remains the leader in providing professional development and resources to practitioners in the fields of cooperative education and internship program management.

Please consider joining us in Chicago for our Annual Conference, March 31 – April 2, 2019. This year’s theme is Experiential Learning on the Rise!

Why attend the Annual Conference?

Targeted sessions for secondary educators include:

Nuts and Bolts: Building Experiential Education/Internship Experiences for High School Students
