About BB2C: Building Bridges to Careers (BB2C) fosters student, business, and civic relationships to inspire career choices through experience, entrepreneurship and education. Through a comprehensive community engagement approach, BB2C involves local businesses and community members in programming that provides experiential learning to students. These programs include direct, experiential learning such as job shadowing, internships, mentoring, and curriculum that brings local community members into the classroom for problem-based learning. Additional programs foster students’ entrepreneurial mindset, encourage educator awareness and connection to the business sector, and provide hands-on application of academic learning. We refer to these types of place-based, authentic, experiential learning opportunities as Community and Career Connected Learning. https://bb2careers.org/
