CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Two New Hampshire groups are partnering to help students in high school and college connect with employers to create “career pathways.”

High school students would gain workforce stills and engage in hands-on learning for credit, and college students would benefit from expanded opportunities for internships. The initiative is created by the Business and Industry Association and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

In addition to students, the initiative’s work will target adults living in and moving to New Hampshire.

In January, the BIA will add a new position, director of workforce development, to oversee the program, called “Workforce Accelerator 2025.”

Both groups have collaborated in the past on Leadership New Hampshire, which has graduated more than 850 people from its leadership development programs since 1993.
