Earn & Learn 2019 Champion Employer Brunch

Highlights from 2019 Earn & Learn Employee Brunch

This year at the Earn and Learn Employer Champion Brunch on May 14th, we were excited to honor 3 employers and 1 individual for their exceptional partnership with Earn and Learn and for their extraordinary focus on creating work-based learning opportunities for students.  Each award winner received a beautiful glass trophy and time on the program to be honored! Company contacts and opportunities are in ELENA!!  

Award winners were:

Individual: Leah Rodrigue from Junior Achievement


Lennar Homes

Shell Oil Martinez

As an award winner, each employer received the production of two short videos produced by a team of college students in a work-based learning program called the Gladeo League.  One video highlighted the employer’s award-winning work with young people, while the other video was a Gladeo On The Go spotlight of one of their employees.
